    Need a Xserve?
    I have 6 G5's and want to hook them all up to share and store files.
    This would not be connected to a company network server.
    We just need one for our 6 G5's to access, store and retrieve files.

    Would the Xserve be the right way to go?

    Way overkill. I would be more apt to point you to a NAS (network-attached storage), or even dedicate a desktop Mac to act as a file server.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Something like a Drobo would probably suit you perfectly:
