Today: Hath Server Rebuild

Today's project is to keep working on the rebuild of our home file/DNS/DHCP/everything else server. I have a new low-powered motherboard and a pair of Western Digital Black 1TB drives and a quiet power supply. I just need to put it all together and setup the software. Having lost my old 1TB drive, I don't have anything to port over, so if there's a silver lining to be had with the loss of 1TB of data, it's that I get to start clean now.

The problem is, the CentOS 5.0 install DVD I have doesn't support my network chip, which means I can't get on the network to install updates which support my network chip. *sigh* So I'm now downloading the newer CentOS 5.3 install DVD, but that's going to take another 3 hours. I _THOUGHT_ I already had this downloaded somewhere, but for the life of me, I can't find it.

In the mean time, I'm putting together a list of all the functions I want this box to perform and investigating software options. So far, the list is:

Off to investigate software options for the above.

I'm using mt-daapd at home, seems to work fine.
