Perfect answers guys, thank you very much indeed - I can only hope to respond as fast and well as you have if you ever need some serverfault type help :)

comment My uncle is the family historian. We need to host about 5-15 TB of images and video. Any inexpensive ideas?
It depends on whether you can survive the odd spot of downtime but pretty much anything will do. I'd be tempted to pickup a mid-range Dell PC or low-end server (something like a T110) with a pair of smallish local disks to mirror, no more than 4GB of memory, a single dual-core CPU will do then add an OS; Windows 7 or Server 2008 would be fine, Ubuntu Server if you fancy more of a challenge then just pickup an external NAS (something like Thecus N7700PRO would give you about 11.5TB usable) or you could go the SuperMicro.com route and semi-build your own.

comment Setup a network using 2 modem and 2 accesspoint
It will help yes, but it's probably MUCH easier to speak the people who are causing the problem than trying to use technology to fix it.

comment Allocating More Than 4 GB Of Memory
Maybe not VMWare as such but that particular product isn't supposed to be too feature-rich so it could easily be what's at fault.
