NASLite is fantastic, used it for a few years now works as Samba Share or

Lots of Free / Simple NAS products on the market now, depends mostly on how
much, and what type of storage you want.  NASLite runs off a floppy, USB, or
if you have to, CD.  Because of the floppy, you can start a system, and have
a full 4 hard drives free.

Subject: [K12OSN] OT - Creating Network Attached Storage

Hello all,
    Recently a colleague asked me if I knew of any turn-key,open-source NAS
systems out there.  The first thing I thought of was a cheap, white-box PC
with a handful of drives, a network card and Damn Small Linux configured for
Samba, NFS, FTP, etc.  I thought, however, that I would appeal to the
collective wisdom of the list to see if anyone knows of (or has the know-how
to create) a simple, graphical NAS solution.  
Any thoughts?


Better to understand a little than to misunderstand a lot.
