A little background: Right now I have a 12" powerbook and very soon hope to be getting my hands a Powermac Quad G5. Also around the same time I'll be ordering the intro bundle with loudspeakers from sonos. At first I was just going to connect the sonos to the powermac, but I don't want it running all of the time, so a NAS drive looks like the way to go.
Both the powermac and powerbook are going to be using an airport express (what an upgrade the sonos are going to be!). Or can I use the sonos's wifi for internet too and bypass using the airport express all together? If not the plan would be to connect the sonos to the wall ethernet port then running the airport express and NAS drive from the back of the Zoneplayer's ethernet ports.
Lastly I want a NAS drive that works best with mac's and pc's. I'd like to be able to add music to the drive from either my powerbook, powermac or any other pc/mac connected to the wireless network.... keeping all the music in sync. Plus the drive would be partitioned so I could also have a backup for my powermac and powerbook (would need to be protected from other users on the network). What ones would you recommend and can all this be done?
Thanks for your time.
