Windows Home Server now $69

Not sure how many people have held off on WHS but at this price it would be worth testing and discarding if it does not meet your needs

Microsoft Windows Home Server OEM at TigerDirect.com

I got technet baby!

Plus, the new version only runs on x64 bit processors, and I was surprised to learn that my server P4 is NOT x64 bit....
I plan to upgrade it one day anyways. When I move out of the dorm maybe.

Something like that. It is an OLD motherboard and processor.

(After looking) It has:
Intel Pentium 4 1.6GHz
2Gb RAM
NVidia GeForce FX 5200
A 250Gb HDD and a 80Gb Hdd
Some other random old hardware

It was fun to put together

So I'm not the only one with a P4 these days.

P4 either 2 or 3 ghz 533FSB
1GB RAM
Intel graphics (man they sucked. Not sure if they have gotten better. But it's shared )

So is WHS compatible with win2k and win7? I have not been able to get either one to see the other on my home network, but if WHS can talk to both, that would solve the file transfer problem.

I'm not sure about Win2k. I know you can add windows 98 to the network, I would assume (I know, I know) that if you can share with a Win98 you should be able to share with a Win2k. Officially WinXP, Vista and Win7 are the approved supported clients.

Link to "Microsoft Windows Home Server Unleashed" and adding devices to the WHS network: InformIT: Adding Devices to the Windows Home Server Network > Installing Windows Home Server Connector on the Client Computers

I highly recommend (and also own) this book. It will tell you everything you need to know about administering a WHS.
