I currently run a custom debian debootstrap with SMB/NFS/FTP on two 256mb compactflash cards in RAID1 for my OS.

Dell workstation mounted in Antec 4u rackmount
P4 1.7GHz
512mb DDR
PCI Sil3132 6channel STAT raid card
PCI Dlink DGE-530T gigabit NIC

I had a heck of a time with the DGE-530T, had to recompile sk98lin and force insert it on boot (init script) but I get full 1000base reported

The current NAS configuration I have is:
2x320GB SATAII NCQ matched pair
2x500GB SATAII NCQ matched par
LVM2 with 4096km PE's fully expanded and formatted as SGI's XFS filesystem (1.49TB)
I quite like the preformance of the XFS filesystem as the NAS handles multimedia editing dumps and group swap data
file sizes: 85% >20mb, 10% <1mb, 5% pdf's and documentation (2-3mb)

MY questions are:
Does NASLite support XFS and logical volume management or would I need to migrate to another system? I assume since their is no software raid and hardware raid should always be optional LVM was the only other way to effectively span drives.
Does NASLite support my evil DGE-530T nic out of the box or will I need to re-compile it again?
