Best distro for a NAS server?

I'm looking for a distribution that would make a good NAS server to hold all my media files. Reliability and support for RAID 5 is a must. Having GUI tools to setup Samba, NFS and file sharing would nice too.

Which would be the best?

I've recently found OpenFiler. It looks kind of cool, but I've not gotten around to trying it yet. If you decide to give it a go, please post back and let us know how it works.

PS - You can find a lot of other "which distro" questions and answers in the distributions forum.
