I am planning a 0710 "core" set up and have a few questions.
When I set up multiple media directors around the home, i am planning on not using HDD in the MD's. I know you are going to say, well this is how the system is intended to be operated so I ask,
1) Using different MD hardware configurations like "video cards" and "audio cards, will this be a problem for the MD's at boot time (boot from LAN card) for loading the proper video and audio drivers on each device. I am sure I will be told that this is not a problem, so anyone that can post some tips, tricks and a good "how to" is much appreciated by myself. and my next question about the MD's configuration is
2) what about the /swap drive (paging device). As I will not be using a HDD in each MD will paging occur over the LAN on the "cores" HDD if more RAM is required?
3) I assume a network laser printer is also supported on the DHCP LAN, does anyone have any network scanning ideas/info?
4) As the MD's are essentially a basic computing device, can "open office" run on the MD's as well for desktop computing? I also assume mozilla or kbrowser will work as well.
thanks for your help
