If I may, about the server. I really think you will find more
redundancy, value, and performance out of a good IDE RAID-1 setup.
Setting it up w/ Ubuntu is a breeze (Alternative Edition). I see no
reason these days to buy SCSI or RAMBUS, aside from the fact that RAMBUS
is a criminal, predatory organization who does things like submit
technology to open standards, hide the fact they patented the shit out
of it, then tries to bully others into paying them. They'll never get a
cent from me.
Basically, you can't beat the setup I mentioned- cheap, fast and rock solid.
