Remote File Access Help.

I work for a small company. Both of my bosses work out of their homes, and I work at one office (home) in particular - with a desktop computer there, but occaisionally take my laptop to the other office, or use my laptop at home to work. We are an engineering firm, so there is a lot of CAD and a lot of digital photos, as well as office documents, etc... We have a local LAN at each office. Currently when I work in the office I access all of our files directly off of my boss's hard drive via the network. If I work from home I use a 2.0GB usb drive to transfer data back and forth.

Lately we have been thinking about getting a network drive which would house all of our data, and allow remote access (to remove the necessity of transfering data from office to office - i.e. the 10pm phone call to send a file via email or the usb drive.) So, I'm looking for suggestions and ideas about the best methods, hardware, etc... to use to accomplish this.

We don't need a huge amount of space data-wise (we have an 80GB external drive that easily stores all the data) I was thinking of a network drive in the range of 100-250GB.

So, any ideas, thoughts or musings would be great. Even a point in the direction of a promising how-to article would be great. Thanks!
