My questions are numerous as I know even less about servers then I do about bulding pc's. I would like to construct a server. The purpose of this will to be to store vast amounts of data, possibly to stream some of the data across the wifi to tv via xbox or Archos. Any helpfulladvice would be welcome on what i need as in hardware and software?
Thanks

Just about any PC will do that. The slow link will be the Wireless.

Lots of hard drives will give you the storage space.
XP will surfice as an operating system.
Any CPU/motherboard you have lying around will make the system.
A big heatsink and slow CPU fan will be quietest.
A video card with no fan, ( I use an old Geforce2 MX), will also help, it's a server, your not going to look at the screen on it.

No need at all.
You will only be sharing a folder or three.
