I appreciate everyones input :) In retrospect, I probably should have bought a NAS. I have 5 external HD's :P Its too bad they don't have 4 bay HD enclosures lol. A good NAS is a wee bit out of my price range at the moment. I like the Data Robotics DroboShare.
What about building your own? There must be a good linux NAS distro out there you could use. You've already got the drives and there are a few "combo" deals out there for motherboards/cpus. Throw in a lower end coolermaster case and some cheapass ram and you've got a NAS... :)
