Windows Homer Server beta

I found out over the weekend that I've been accepted into the Windows Home Server beta. I'm pretty stoked about it because I was really impressed with it at CES and because it solves a few problems a few problems at home. I still haven't installed it yet (or the Vista Ultimate upgrade I bought a few weeks ago) but I think it's something I'm going to try and do this weekend.

I need to sit down and figure out what I want the topology of the home network to be right now. I have an old Win2K3 server that I could re-purpose for the Home Server but it's a bit on the old side and doesn't have a lot of hard drive space. I could use the Media Server box but it's the media server box and I don't want to lose that capability (especially now that I've finally got Orb running on it correctly). The main rig is out of the question so I'm starting to think now might be the time to put together a new box. I'll figure it out this weekend so look for updates next week
