Need some advice on a home IT setup

Hi guys,

Seen loads of post, and searched through the net, but couldnt really find my answer...

Summary: Family of 4 entrepreneurial business people running 2 businesses from home.

1 business is a consultancy, and another is Organic Delivery.

I have 2 PC’s (which are 6 years old) and 1 is used as a server, except they are a standalone.

1 of the machines is the main machine, which is used for accounting, payroll and has a G-raid backup and WD mybook harddrives as storage. Not an ideal situation really.

The organic business also is situated in another site, which comprises of 1 PC. This PC is only used for excel spreadsheets and is saved locally. I use LogMeIn to access that PC and find it very cumbersome to use.

The main 2 PC’s are old, dying and cannot install SP3.

I also have 1 Laptop with Vista, 1 mac book pro (that is using a vista dualboot using vmware) and another Imac

The other two people in the business are photgraphers and therefore utilise some hdd space.

My ideal Solution:

I need to come up with a a solution that doesnt require LogmeIn (or variations of) to access the remote PC.

Also, I need to be able to integrate the Mac and Windows environment.

What do you guys recommed?

Thanks in advance
