Last month at XCSSA we had a presentation my Tim S. on building an ulrta low
power DIY NAS system (with hot swap RAID+LVM) using Ubuntu IIRC. I think
that he used a VIA C7 based mobo with no moving parts, and an ultra low power
SATA drives. Ahh.. here it is:
I'm still looking for his slide deck to post on http://xcssa.org/files if
you're interested, let me know and I'll flag you as soon as I post them.
Either that or you can drop Tim a line on the XCSSA list.
