I'm looking to build a NAS with 4TB of storage (2x 2TB). What suggestions do you have for OS?

I'm looking into running FreeNAS on a CF card through an IDE->CF adapter. Does anyone have any experience?

This PC is going to be purely used as a NAS so I don't need a linux solution with a full user interface. I just want a WebGUI, ftp, and Samba access.

Are you just adapting an x86 machine into NAS or actually buying hardware?

I dunno 600-700 dollars. We already have the drives and will probably just run an inexpensive motherboard with an AMD dual core proc. I'm not nearly as worried about the hardware as the OS.

Pre-made NAS boxes are more expensive than we're interested in.

i was gonna say http://www.memorylabs.net/thn44us2gran.html or even better: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Seagate+-+B ... 8122575888 but you already bought 2tb drives, so the first won't work with your drives, and the 2nd one already has drives.

probably not the best for your situation, but i messed with unRAID some time ago with some ragtag drives. It's not as fast nor is it neat and tidy 'feeling' but it is a really cool use of all those extra drives you have laying around.
