I have learned so much in this process it amazes me.
My home network is now consists of 3 virtual servers. housed in one physical server 1 freenas box, 3 Desktops, 2 laptops, 1 netbook and an ipod touch.
Wow. that's way to much electronics for three people.
all of this preperation is completed, and I'm just about through the first chapter of the book. I'm now preparing to do a WDS Server install on the third virtual server and progress on to the rest of the book.
I'm excited. :)
