Anyone else using FreeNAS with their PB? I build a box using FreeNAS partly based on this blog.
Mine uses the same raid card, the Highpoint 1740, with a single 750GB drive to start (I will get the other 3 as finances allow.)
specs on my server:
Antec Sonata case, celeron 433 proc and MoBo, 512 MB DDR RAM, 160GB drive for OS (I have intentions of going to a CF for the boot drive, I just haven't done it yet.)
What are you using?
How much space do you have?
I am debating whether or not to go to a Windows 2003 domain controller on the above box for shared printers, home drives and the like but it is difficult with the Highpoint card, due to its driver support and the fact that all my movies are already on a drive formatted UFS.
