New Thoughts

There's a free VMware ESX release. This leads to interesting possibilities:
  • get 2x500GB SATA drives.
  • install ESXi on the server, using software RAID on the disks..
  • install Solaris VM for SunRays.
  • install Windows VM (or VMs, depending on family requirements)
  • install a CentOS 5 VM.
Saturn will only take two drives, so I'm considering some other solution for large amounts of data. Something like the 1TB network-attach storage might work, I think it's around $400. It doesn't solve the problem of having all my data in one house, but it would help with the finger-problem.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
