I have WS 2003 Enterprise. I have half a dozen PCs at home running
Windows ME and XP, mostly XP. I use these PCs mainly for photo and
video editing work and keeping a library of music to play when I edit
my photos. I might also do some software development in the future.

I am thinking of installing the server software on one of the PCs. So
far the only use for this server that I can think of is printer and
file sharing. I assume I can put my music library on this server and
listen to it from any of the PCs in the house.

Are there other uses that I can take advantage of? I don't think I want
to host my own website.
I am reading a few books such as WS 2003 for Dummies and Learning
Windows Server 2003. But none of these target 'home' users like me.
