affordable NAS

Hello all:
I was looking at the NAS minis, and while they look amazing they're also 
way expensive. I was interested to see if someone has a good solution 
for a cheap small NAS system that I could either build or purchase that 
wouldn't cost nearly as much. I'm looking for freebsd-compatible 
hardware with at least a gigabit ethernet card. I'll be dropping in the 
harddrives, I'm thinking raid 10 (though it doesn't have to be--I just 
wanted the striping for a larger disk space plus redundancy via mirror), 
with maybe 4 2 tb drives.

I'll be using stock FreeBSD on this: I have no clue how accessible the 
FreeNAS web frontend or any of the other software would be for something 
like this with a screen reader. Any thoughts/ideas would be awesome.


Take care,
He that will not reason is a bigot; he that cannot reason is a fool; he that dares not reason is a slave.
