  1. I am planning on Building a Linux Storage Server similar to this article. I am looking at this general spec so far Processor – Intel or AMD Athlon Motherboard – Intel or Nvidia chipset ASUS 512MB RAM - Corsair 250GB – Hitachi Deskstar T7K250 SATA II (System Drive for Operating System) 3 x 250GB – Hitachi Deskstar T7K250 SATA II (500GB Storage in RAID5) Use Software RAID and separate controllers for the data drives Use Extra onboard SATA II controller or add SATA II PCIe Card Onboard Video card Onboard Gigabit LAN No Sound card Maybe even wait for 500GB drives to drop in price and get 1TB storage. Any comments ?

    I am not keen on buying a drive from manufactuers that don't make all thier drive software tools for Linux. IBM does.
