3 in a raid 0 mirrored onto the other 3 in raid 1. ?
Can you add more later?

How many disks on the raid 0 backup file server?
So a RAID 10 on one server with nfs and a backup raid 0 server. ?

I remember an article praising XFS. (and it's under active development).

I love APC. APCUPSD rocks the house. The config file emails my cell phone
when something happens.

Haha. I have been using Debian for a while and I finally managed to hose a
system. (But it did take a lot of silliness on my part). I'm kicking
myself because neither Lenny nor Squeeze are handling the projector the
way I'd like. (Which is odd as I had a Lenny/Squeeze/Sid that was doing
things well... before I hosed it.)

Good idea. Having just hosed my system, I've been contemplating what has
to be reconfigured -- cron, rsync, apc, exim, ...

Great idea. Small form factor, ssd. sounds good. How do you connect to the
NFS - fiber/ cat5/6?
