Question Setting up a HomeServer

Ok, perhaps i'm going a little bit of topic with my next question... but I
didn't find a appropiate group to post this question and since everyone here
knows a bit of everything perhaps I could get an answer.

Basically what I need if to build a homeserver, well.. at least, set it up,
cause I have 3 computers that I could clusterize ,even though a friend told
me that clusterizing migh not be the best idea form what i have in mind,
which is hosting a website/blog and file server, and the idea is that these
3 computers share one single harddrive.

Which OS would be appropiate to do this perhaps a linux distro? is clusterizing a good idea for this? or perhaps set it up as some kind of distributed database?

Default Re: Setting up a HomeServer

I probably don't know the answer to your question but I think I know enough to ask that you need to clarify.

Basically, you want to run a web server from your home to the outside world and a file server that you can share files among the 3 computers? Why do you want to have 3 computers share 1 hard drive, instead of having 3 separate hard drives?

The web server can be done through Apache/IIS within the Windows framework (that's what I'm familiar with), and I'll leave the filesharing system up to someone else (although it can probably be done with Windows Server).
