Baby: An AMD Athlon XP 2000+ with 512Mb memory, 52x CD drive, DVD RW drive, 80 gig HD, 1.44 meg FD, ATI AllInWonder 7500 video adapter And on board sound and networking . Baby is running Windows 2003 server, and is the primary domain controller, ftp, DNS, and DHCP server.
Opus: An AMD Duron 1300 with 256Mb of memory, 52x CD drive, CD RW drive, 15 gig HD, 1.44 meg FD, and an ATI Radeon 7000 video adapter. Opus is running SuSe Linux 9.5 Professional Opus is a file server and hosts a MySQL database and an Apache web server.

The net work is connected by a LynkSys hub and a Wireless G router to the internet through an Actiontech DSL modem.
What I will be doing here is keeping a record of upgrades, modifications, and problems I run into. Hopefully, this will be helpful to other people who are interested in setting up a home network
