Specialized linux distribution for NAS
Posted on 2003-11-26
I would like to set up a PC as an NAS (network attached storage). Is there some specialized Linux distribution available? I know I could just set up a "normal" linux system, but then I would have to add SAMBA, software RAID, a web based management interface, etc.
There are quite a lot of specialized / customized linux distributions available for setting up internet routers (IPCOP, fli4u), but I could not find anything similar for building a NAS.
Is there such a thing? The key requirements would be the integration into a Windows based network (i.e. CIFS / SMB) as well as some sort of a web based management console.
Thanks in advance
