      hmm original link seems unreachable, times out.

      If this seems a bit skimpy or shady here’s an alternative.

      This guide will lead you step-by-step through the process of building and configuring your own home server based on Ubuntu Linux. We will configure a Central Media Hub, a Dedicated Torrent Box, a File Serve, and a Web Server, All to be housed in a few Virtual Machines in Sun’s VirtualBox software. This requires no hardware virtualization, and can be run on virtually any hardware you have lying around the house. Most Things have WebGUI’s associated with them. After the initial installation, most things can be configured through a Web Browser, with almost no need for the command line.


    2. That’s overly complicated.

      Instead of installing a desktop system and partially stripping it, just do a minimum Debian install (with no window system or anything). You’ll get more system resources and hard drive space that way, which is good since you’ll probably just want to use an old crappy computer to do this.
