Nope, I'm not sure if I will get them either. UPS is a "oh heck yes" on the servers though.

I figured that was a given. Got anything specific picked out? I'm surprised that corsair can handle all those drives on start up.

If you are looking at running *nix I would recommend either:


Debian Stable or FreeBSD 7.1

If you use Samba though, why would you need an ext3 driver? I can read my web server no problem.

I'll look into it, I just don't want to be running 4 different "versions" of linux.

I don't think one is needed either. My Ubuntu f/s uses ext3 on the shared drives and I have no trouble reading-writing-adding-deleting dirs and files from my Vista PCs or XP Home PC. I never actively installed drivers for an smb share in Windows.

I do, however, have to ssh into the f/s to alter file permissions when needed. I don't know about file ownership editing from a windows client because I have never tried.

Each with their own subtle differences... For simplicity's sake, I wouldn't want to do that either. Sounds like a good way to get heartburn.

Why buy a wired/wireless router, or a Wi-fi Access Point? Harness the power of your old PC for free, instead.

It was more a rhetorical question than anything, I knew the answer
