First, you get a nice fat juicy OC3 from Sprint or Verio (oh yeah a cable modem will do) and then go out to CompUSA and get a dependable metacluster. Something like an SGI will do, but you can use a bunch of desktops ^^.
Install a pirated version of Windows2000 Advanced Server or Linux which is free... setup an FTP server. You can store everything on your drive or use a symbolic reference mapping to share it over the network. If you're sharing using a mapping panel it's even easier, you can share it directly like:
or in windows
It is not reccodmended to use other programs or to use a symbolic drive map such as Map network Drive. This server should be dedicated or no one will come. Get a cable or DSL service with no downtime and a static IP. And, of course, a server room, or a closet padded with rubber on the door:
I could NEVER sleep with my servers turned on in the closet, the damn rck fans kept we awake so I just pushed the power button nd got some rest. You don't want to do that. Put it in the basement. In a nice room. And a K4 rack, definitely.
