This came up at the PLUG N Pi discussion.  That was the recommendation
there as well.

Honestly, I couldn't see implementing a NAS using any hardware which
didn't include:
1.  Gigabit ethernet.
2.  Multiple SATA/eSATA interfaces.

You could probably get away with less if it were just a backup server,
but you want a file server to be fast.
