    I had some extra hardware laying around and decided to put together a little box to act as a network storage device/media server. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to set it up to do what I want it to do. I have one drive in there that has all my mp3s/movies and another that I use as a dumping ground for various files. Right now its running Win2k and I just set up a bunch of folders with file-sharing. Is this the right way?

    ya I guess that would work

    not exactly sure of what your trying to accomplish, if it's just another machine to save files on, then yes shared folders work...

    another thing that would work would be to setup a ftp which is what I was going to suggest before reading your using file sharing...file sharing is definitivally better in this situation...ftp would be a step back in this case...

    ya...so I guess it is the right way if it's doing what you need...
