"Beginners guide" to server OS?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello!

I've recently built a little home server (you can check it on my sign), to mainly serve as data repositoy and streaming media to my other devices, but i'm a complete newb on server OS, server management and server theory in general and honestly i don't know how and where to start. Any of you know about some kind of "beginners guide" to server OS (Win or Linux).

I've been looking in google for it but i can't find anything straightforward. The ones that i found are very technical and i lack the theory.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance! thumb.gif

There's a Server help thread over in the servers forum that might help get you started.

There's quite a large number of threads in the server forum that will cover your questions, I think. If you start a thread over there (or get this one moved, just better for organization is only reason) we'll try and help you out/answer your questions.
