Turn an Old Computer into a Networked Backup, Streaming, or Torrenting Machine with FreeNAS
Is there a way of installing FreeNAS without a cdrom? I have got usb sticks handy that I could use maybe use unetbootin? Unetbootin has FreeNAS in it, but I got nothing but trouble from that version. You can try, but I don't know if it'll work. Do you really have NO CD drives? You can always burn the live cd, Install it from the live CD onto a flash drive (on any computer), then install it from the flash drive to the hard drive of a NAS...

What Is UPnP and How Do I Use it to Stream Media to My TV? Hmm, I must have been looking at the wrong page when I found it. It said it still only supported a limited number of devices.
