Home Theatre PC anyone?

I'm thinking about the possibility of a Home Theatre PC.
Its got to be small and discreet, possibly a Shuttle variant, not sure yet which one.
I would like to know (in laymans terms) how I could network it to my other rigs that are in my study and possibly share my broadband conection as well? It will be in my living room and other rigs are in the study which is upstairs at the end of the house.
It will be use mainly for playing movies divX etc and Folding.

Laz.

If you are looking for a Home theater PC, you may be want to look for an HTPC case, like the Antec HTPC case or the DIGN HTPC case. They match home theaters and are remote controlled.

You can always interconnect the PCs with their LAN. If you want a wireless connection, bluetooth connectors may be good for you but first check if the PCs aren't between too many things or too far from each other, it will obstruct the signal.
