Thanks for the replies. It is for business. I was thinking of buying 
one of these new boxes that contain simply a hard drive to act as a 
file server and then attach a further drive to that for backup 
purposes. I think Western Digital sell the sort of things I mean. It 
attaches to your router and is ready by Mac, Linux and Windows.

I had forgotten about the dmz - an important point. So I run a computer 
as web server from that and then have a separate box acting as a 
Firewall and then routing to the network. That means another two 
computers! As I run a small web business is it worth doing all that 

I understand what folks say about keeping everything separate and maybe 
I need to look into it further.

Thanks for the help.
