Just add 2 drives and off you go...
Looks like you have just missed the promotion :-( however they were running a similar offer before Christmas so might extend it or run another soon.
I bought one at Christmas and added 3 1.5TB disks in md RAID 10 and Fedora 14. Seems OK so far.
Looks like it even had it's own P2P software built-in too ... Never used one though... GordonThanks for the help Gordon, much appreciated. Like you said building one myself seems to turn out more expensive and I think I was a bit ambitious in terms of the size and price I was expecting. That "Synology DiskStation" looks great and is about the right budget but my only hesitation right now is the OS installed. Ideally I would like to be able to run a different OS if possible (i.e. Linux) and these sorts of devices seem to be vary brief when it comes to listing the OS installed. The reason for that is I would need to use the likes of SSH and rsync etc etc. Will keep looking around. Cheers again. Gibbs
