I just purchased an underpowered computer to experiment further with remote desktops.
Ideally I'd like to be able to use a remote desktop technology to stream HD video from the remote server, play a game on the client that's rendered on the more powerful server, and to have a local user work on the remote serving computer while another account on the server is being accessed remotely by the thin client.

Looking to build a Intel Sandy Bridge Windows 7 machine that will primarily function as a centralized repository for mp3s, movies, and photos. Anyone have any hardware recommendations? [more inside]

I would like a simply way to access my desktop's hard drives from my notebook. I don't have much networking experience. Both systems run WinXP. The desktop is hooked up to an 802.11b Lynksys Wireless-B router. The notebook, which has WiFi, gets its internet connection from this router. I realize that, with this system, there's no way that the desktop can access the notebook's harddrives, but what about vice versa?
