I am hoping that as this is my first post this is the right list to 
post to.

I am starting to look at building networks. I have up to now usually 
used a Netgear 4 port router/hub and ran a network like that. The 
network usually consists of a variety of OS's but most XP boxes.

However, I now want to add into these networks, backup technology and 
also webservers. I use Mac OS X but can use also XP or Linux sort of! I 
know I need to use a modem to connect to the net and serve web pages 
but is it best to use Netgear's in built web pages or default to a 
purpose build web serverplease? If I built a web server would you then 
have that as a file server and also as a router please?

Any advice would be welcome please and if I am on the wrong list please 
forgive me and direct me to another one if you know of one.

Many thanks.
