    Right, just wander what the my best solution for network storage is,

    I need:
    • 100mbps Ethernet
    • Firewire (could get away with USB2)
    • User accouts, and a public aera with limitable space
    • MacOS X, Win2000/XP, linux accessibility

    A low power stand alone device would be perfect, but nowhere can i find what they can do? can i setup accounts on them? or is everything only accessible via 1 username/pass?

    Or am i better off making a small linux box with a couple of HDDs?

    i would go with a linux box if you need raid, and sophisticated off site access to the hard drives.


    check google for NAS or network attached storage.
