This is a advanced beginner project but might be a good goal to strive for
since it will demostrate the full power of networking and segmenting your
machine into several "machines". Note you should only do this if you have
4 or more cores, more then 4 GB of RAM and 100+ GB of disk available:
Set up and configure the following virtual machines using byhve:
File/Print/DNS server running FreeBSD
A Linux machine that uses shared (with the server above) set of common
home directories (via NFS)
A Windows machine that has access the home directories on the server
above (via CIFS/Samba)

The above setup does just that.
