    Can you use a emac like a base station/NAS

    I have a macbook, which I connect to an external hard drive for backup, music/video storage. I'd like to link the macbook to the hard drive wirelessly so I can use the macbook anywhere in the house.

    I have a now redundant emac, which I was wondering if I could use it like a base station or NAS. So I could link the hard drive to the emac and then have that as a kind of server the macbook wirelessly links too.

    see specs:

    eMac 1.25GHz/256/80/Superdrive 15"
    running MAC OS X 10.3.9 Panther

    LaCie d2 Quadra Hard Drive

    Is this possible and what software would I need? are there any articles threads out there that can tell me how this could be done.

    Thanks you.

    Sharepoints will allow you to share the external HD on the eMac.
