File Server Distribution


Are there any file server distributions? I would like to build a file server, similar to TeraStation. I would like to be able to administer thru a remote connection, have four disk in software raid 5, have the distribution partition and format the system. Does this exist??

Debian is a good one. Not sure how to setup raid. Here's a couple of links:

i don't want a gui or a graphics card installed, unless the bios won't let the system boot without it. i would like the installed OS to be a small as possible. i would like a distribution that will load automatically and then let me remote login to finish the setup; create accounts, etc. something simillar to smooth firewall.

i have started my project, which will be a file server/firewall/router. this is what i have ordered:

Aopen i945Pa-PLF

Intel Celeron D 351 Prescott 533MHz FSB 256KB L2 Cache LGA 775 EM64T Processor

4x Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 ST3400633AS 400GB SATA2 7200RPM Hard Drive w/16MB Buffer

CORSAIR VALUE SELECT 1GB DDR2 667MHz

i have started to load FC4, now to find the right software. i set the red nix to dhcp and have assigned the green nix to a fixed ip.
