long story! (but it wasn't from all the 'hand wringing' over LMCE )
Hey, I believe you completely. I have about 12 years of experience in IT, which is coming in handy, and a stout determination in making this work. Granted I am complicating the issue with the hardware raid that I am putting in place, but still, it can be a bit overwhelming for even an experienced IT person to undertake.
As soon as I do have it working, I intend to FULLY document every single step that I take to build a massive CORE so that others can learn from my experience.
We have over 300 DVD's that I intend to rip to disk, as well as looking at the home automation and security modules as well.
All I need to do is get these hard disks to show up and I can move forward!
