Hey there. I am just about to follow Bit Tech's Guide to making your own xubuntu file server. I am planning to use an old Epia M Mini ITX board (1ghz CPU) and 512MB RAM. Main question: would people recommend i use this or FreeNAS? I am basically looking for RAID's NAS but with the ability to remotely access my files if needed. Question if i go down the xubuntu route: I have a RAID PCI card that i could use but whilst searching the forum replies to the above article i saw some people talking about using software RAID. What would people recommend i use? WHen i went to d/l the Xubuntu image CD (link) i also saw an alternate CD image install that includes support for "RAID partitioning" - do i need to use this one if i am planning to use software RAID. Thanks Cyp.
