    Figuratively because there's little left to pull.
    I have been trying to figure out how to set up a home server for files and a central e-mail repository.
    I've tried to set up FreeNAS but I think you need VMware to run it, however since none of the instructions are clear...... :dunno:
    I tried Ubuntu Server but here it's all terminal commands and again the instructions are not designed for n00bs, far to much Geekanese.
    Other than buying Windows Home Server, which I really don't want to do, I see no way for entry level Geekanese speakers to figure this out.

    It has been a while since I have built one...but Redhat was king for this years ago.
    When you install Redhat, you have an option of choosing "server or desktop".
    If you choose server you have the option to choose pre-installed email servers, SAMBA for file servers etc.
    I found this:
