Hello all. It's been 6 years since I last logged in and my account still exists. I'm so amazed. Amyway,

Being mildly competent in computers and knowing very little about Networking, I'm looking to create a little network for all four of my kids without buying four computers. I have considered ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 - G1610T, installing virtualBox on it and having four instances of ubuntu or windows running on it going to 4 monitors ect ect.. now, there is probably something I'm missing from this and there is probably an easier way as well. Any help or being able to point me in the right direction would be great. It's only needed for web browsing and basic word processing.
Peace.

 Are you asking how to get them online? How to build it? Configure the OS? What network equipment would it be connected to?

Wondering if that set up was possible and what if anything I've missed out hardware wise. It would be connected to my home router. Bt home hub five. What OS would I have to use?

I have some ncomputing devices at my work that's why I know the solutions they have.
