External HD + iBook + Mac Mini Server?

Right so I currently have an iBook G3 900mhz running 10.3.9... and have recently bought a NAS from Freecom (Classic SL 400GB) as my 40GB hard drive was pretty much filled...
...the problem I am having is the hard drive is difficult to keep mounted... everytime my iBook sleeps it loses the connection. Also when I'm uploading stuff to it, its really slow... and it can barely stream some 480x320 .mpg4 video files.
Are there any quick fixes for these?
One this I was thinking, is it worth investing in a MacMini to use as a server and plug the hard drive in to there via USB or possibly ethernet?
Any advice, or tips would be gratefully received.
