Hey guys, Ok so I am setting up a two-computer network in my room. What I have: - Dell Laptop, PIII 1.13 GHz, 512MB RAM, 10GB HD, WinXP (from Kazaa) - Gateway Desktop PI MMX 233 MHz, 32MB RAM, 20 GB HD, Win95 (file server) - LinkSYS 802.11B wireless router with 4-point switch The laptop is connected via wireless, and I plan to connect the Desktop with Cat5. The desktop's only real intended purpose will be hosting my extra music and video files. Some questions: 1) Should I/do I have to upgrade the Gateway to WinXP? Or is it possible to network them with Win95? 2) If so, how well can the Gateway run WinXP with only 32MB RAM and 233 MHz? 3) Someone told me to run Linux. I have no experience with Linux at all. How easy is it to learn and can I network Linux with WinXP? Thanks in advance!!
