Thanks for all of the help, I am at work now, but will being trying this when I get home.  The only other question I have is about my second HD that houses both the partition I record to and the /home partition.  Currently, I have the /audio drive split apart from /home, and I am wondering if there is any need for this?  I am doing it so that I can have the audio drive formatted XFS and the home drive ext3, but I would like to hear about how some other people are doing it.

It poses no major security risk that I'm aware of. It only grants
certain permissions, such as the ability run SCHED_FIFO, etc., to
certain groups, not to anyone. Only your audio user account would be
(nominally) granted these permissions. Segregate your email to another
account if you want to be extrememly safe. I don't think anyone else
here is doing that, but you certainly could until you get more
comfortable with the whole environment.

You might, in this case, actually do even better with Win4Lin which
allows you to run a copy of Windows inside of Linux. It works very

If need be. Check out Cedega as I run a number of gmaes like HAlf
Life, Starcraft and Caesar 3, in Linux and they work fine.

I don't see why there would be any major differences with Samba, other
than possible login issues due to changes in PAM, etc. I don't think
anyone can tell you today how a login would be different. I think
you'd just jump in and work it out. I'm confident it will work.
