    Hey I am curious if there is a method in place to do this ... I was thinking of a Unslung with USB Hub to Port 1 and then 3x300GB USB2 in RAID 5 setup ... Is this possible on this box? Too much for this little CPU?? Anybody even try it yet?

    :rofl: I hope you do realize that doing RAID5 in software is really a pretty bad idea and even then...the little NSLU2 can't cope with that. :grin:

    But there's in an option for you :D - get one of those external RAID boxes and then hook that up to the NSLU2. Having said that though, I would say that USB bottleneck would make it pretty ineffective :drinking:

    Yeah true .... I was not looking for performance rather a RAID 5 Archive that stays pretty much static and read only ... but I have come up with an alternative solution ... Infrant Systems has a Device that suites all my needs ...

    Thanks for your help
