you should check out FreeNAS.  Its built using FreeBSD and allows the  
use of ZFS.  I got a hold of an old Dell PE840 (Dual core Xeon 2.0Ghz,  
2 gigs of ram, RAID 10 on a Perc 5/i with 256 megs of ram, and a  
gigabit nic) and it kills.  Has a nice browser interface so management  
is OS independent.  I picked up the server on E-Bay for $300 about 18  
months ago.
