I'll be doing 2 things mainly;
Since I prefer apple lossless for my iPod, even with a few hundred gig 
hard drive, i would use a ridiculous quantity of space on my pc to do this.
I also want to copy imprtant files from windows and bsd boxes to it, as 
a long term backup storage solution. 
I could just build a nix box with a 3ware raid controller running samba, 
but not having done that before, I'm not sure how much work is in there.
Maybe offer others storage as well.  I'm envisioning a raid 5 box with 
1.5 to 2 terabytes.
I looked at, 
but changing the array size doesnt appear to be an easy process there.
