homeserver

P: n/a
Ok, perhaps i'm going a little bit of topic with my next question... but I
didn't find a appropiate group to post this question and since everyone here
knows a bit of everything perhaps I could get an answer.

Basically what I need if to build a homeserver, well.. at least, set it up,
cause I have 3 computers that I could clusterize ,even though a friend told
me that clusterizing migh not be the best idea form what i have in mind,
which is hosting a website/blog and file server, and the idea is that these
3 computers share one single harddrive.

Which SO would be appropiate to do this (ok, it's pretty obvious that
windows server would be an obvious suggestion, but i can't afford it right
now) perhaps a linux distro? is clusterizing a good idea for this? or
perhaps set it up as some kind of distributed database?
