OK, good responses. But a few things...
* I don't intend this to be a "real" NAS, per se. Its main job will be to serve as backup storage. I don't intend, for instance, to have streaming videos coming from it. What I *would* like, however, is for it to be able to copy files from one USB-connected disk to the other w/o dying. I just ran a test, and the Pi was apparently unable to run rsync when throttled to 24 Kbps; that's hardly a screaming rate. Any ideas on what ight be a "safer" way to copy between the disks other than rsync?
* Is Raspbian perhaps not the right OS for this? Would Arch be a lighter-weight solution?
* I understand that NTFS puts a higher load on the CPU than other file systems. Would ext2 be better than ext3 for this?
