Thoughts on Home Media Servers


I recently got a hold of a Dell PowerEdge 1900 server and want to
repurpose it as a home media server. Its got six 750gb hard drives,
and I am leaning toward combining them all into a single virtual disk,
RAID 10, carving off a 35gb and a 5gb partition for the OS and swap,
then setting up the rest as a roughly 2.2tb data partition. But I am
new to all this, so I really don't have a good grasp of the pros and
cons of this set up.
Any thoughts from the peanut gallery?
Windows 7 is way better then xp,it can run a lot of programs that
require windows 7 and xp, my computer boots up faster then xp,i love
the windows key + alt feture , i love it wen you open up a closed
program that program pops up using a fade animation it is so cool,i
can use directx 11
best windows ever
Windows XP & 7 & 8

I recently saw an offer from NeedAServer in the offers section
(http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=1292247) - basically
from what ive found, they are part of CorperateColo, which has been
around for some time now.
Would it be safe to assume that
NeedAServer is legit, even if the domain has been registered this
year?

What are your thoughts on Windows Media Player 11 ? I have been using
it for about 3 weeks now on my XPsp2 box, it is supposed to be the
vista version.
Notice similarities to Linux programs? />Gmusicbrowser? Cowbell? others?
Just wondering what your
thoughts are?
*hangs head in shame for still using windows, even
though I prefer Ubuntu(I really need to spend some time setting up my
Ubuntu into a multimedia powerhouse; any suggesstions on how to do
this?)*

I'm trying to increase the size of my /home partition, and according
to this, I can use Toporesize to do so. I tried doing that, however
there is little documentation apart from the readme file which states:
class="bbcode_description">Quote:
In order to increase the size of base.img you must first
increase the size of the file itself. That is where this program comes
in. Select the file and adjust the slider to the size in MB that you
want the file to be then click "resize file" If you are
enlarging the file extra blank space will be appended to the end of
the file.

Hello everyone,
I need a media server that is not (too) difficult
to set up, does not require a GUI, and is compatable with PS3. Any
suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.
uShare: Set it
up.. Didn't work. PS3 didn't recognise it.
MediaTomb: Set it up..
Didn't work. PS3 Recognises but shows no files.
PS3 Media Server:
GUI is required (right?)
Thanks!
[EDIT]
MediaTomb works
fine (for now at least). I just didn't add the video content correctly
