JOINING THE SA FORUMS WILL REMOVE THIS BIG AD, THE ANNOYING UNDERLINED ADS, AND STUPID INTERSTITIAL ADS!!!

You can: log in, read the tech support FAQ, or request your lost password. This dumb message (and those ads) will appear on every screen until you register! Get rid of this crap by registering your own SA Forums Account and joining roughly 150,000 Goons, for the one-time price of $9.95! We charge money because it costs us money per month for bills, and since we don't believe in showing ads to our users, we try to make the money back through forum registrations.

NASLite

Simliar to FreeNAS mentioned in the OP, but is Linux-based and much more stable and streamlined. It's not free, but it's worth the $30 IMO.

It can boot from hard disk, CD or a USB drive, supports SMB/CIFS, FTP, NFS, AFP, mDNS, Rsync, HTTP, Gigabit, IDE, SATA, SCSI, USB/FireWire and RAID.

It'll run on just about anything, has very low hardware requirements, and boots into an 8MB RAM Disk.

It's meant for low security situations, so if you need something with user management or disk quotas, this is not what you want.

I've been using NASlite for a couple years now, and have never had any problems with it. It's dead easy to set up and maintain, and has a great support community if anything should go wrong.
