Well, I just set up a NASLite-SMB box with one 80gig hard drive in it (picked up on sale at Office Depot), and have started moving music files and downloads onto it. I will probably also be storing Ghost images on it.
I have three different peecees on the LAN (running Windows XP Home, XP Pro, and Win98 respectively), and an Amiga1200. I have two other peecees ready to join the LAN but need to get a better KVM switch for them. (That is, go from a two-machine KVM switch to a 4-machine KVM switch or better.)
I aim to transfer all the downloaded files from the Windows machines, and all my MP3s, and a bunch of pictures and stuff.
The MP3s are mostly ones I have done from my own collection of CDs, though I have also downloaded a selection of MP3s from places where the ones that made the music put them up on their vanity page, and whatnot.
I'll probably add more drives to the NASLite box here, but right now the 80gigger is enough. Knock wood...
BTW, to that guy who said he couldn't transfer any files to the drive until he booted the drive into a Linux live-CD... I ran into a similar problem when accessing from the Amiga. I had set a program called SMBFS (from the AmiNet) to access the drive via .../disks or .../info instead of pointing it to .../disk-1 and discovered I could not SAVE files to the device, though I could transfer files FROM it. Setting it up so that the Amiga "saw" the device as what was on .../disk-1 on the other hand fixed that, and now I can read AND write to the NASLite box.
Mind you, that was with the SMB variant, and you were using the FTP variant, but I imagine it is the same here with both.
