Network Attached Storage - Project ??


I wondered if anyone can answer this ...

I've been looking in to Network Attached Storage for a few weeks now and haven't got very far, the only solutions I can find are from the likes of 3Com and Maxtor etc.. These little boxes contain too small a drive and are WAY over priced (example about 1500) Does anyone know of a project thats running at the moment to build my own? When I say project I mean like people have done in the past with MP3 players for home hifi etc.. At present I have a PC doing this job but its taking up too much space and resources, ultimatly I would like a box sitting on my desk with my 100GB drive in it with some sort of web front end thats controllable from any machine on the network....

If such a project doesn't exist does anyone want to start one ??

Thanks for listening,
