Im not sure why you guys using Server OS's to just be simple files servers. Unless you unlock the near full potential of these OS's, its a complete waste of time for you. Just about any old raggety OS can be a file server.
One can never have too much knowledge, and servers/networking has always been a tough spot for me so I'd like a little hands on training since that's the best way I learn.
Besides, if I can work out the little bugs here and there it might just take the place of Vista as my main OS. Seems faster.
Thanks guys so much for the help so far!!
