Recommended NAS Solution

I'm considering purchasing a NAS box to provide shared file storage for our home network consisting of Win XP and Linux PC's. Can anyone suggest a possible solution for our requirements? I'd prefer purchasing a dedicated solution (such as D-Link's DNS-323, if it can also be made to work for Linux boxes), rather than trying to build a solution from bare metal up.

Can anyone assist with ideas/experiences? Sorry if this is the wrong forum...

The NSLU2 is very popular, and Linux support won't be an issue (configuration is web based, and it uses Samba for file sharing).
