For the past two days I have been trying to build a file-sharing server for my home that can be accessed from any computer with an internet connection. I found an old Pentium 4 computer that used to have a virus-filed, broken WinXP. I installed Xubuntu 10.04 and I have been figuring out how to make it run headless and make my files on it available on my network. So far I haven't really been successful. I fiddled with SAMBA and SWAT but I'm completely lost due to me being kind of a newbie. I was wondering if anyone could help out by pointing to the right direction. Also, I don't mind installing another version of Linux or even Windows. Any help is appreciated.
