planning a pluto home system
« Reply #15 on: August 15, 2006, 04:28:11 am »
well since UPS destroyed my media box in shipping (thank god for insurance) i can now look into re-building it with a small internal drive and can attach some larger external USB or Firewire drives to the core server.

does anyone have experience with PCI usb or firewire cards that work out of the box with the Pluto core OS?

in theory, they all should work.

ok, next question... i plan to add 500GB to 1 TB of HD storage to the pluto core via an external USB or Firewire drive.

i would hope to use this space to store boot images and media files.

i would assume i should use at least 2 partitions and mount one where the boot images are stored, and the other where the media is stored.

are there any other areas i should mount additional storage? (i have 2 x 18.2GB hot swappable scsi drives built into the server)

also, since i am going to add additional external storage, i can set them up as a RAID0 for redundancy or a RAID1 for speed, depending on the storage needs of the pluto home system. so is 18.2 GB enough as long as i mount external storage for the media and boot images?
