Thanks for the enthusiastic welcome golgoj4.
That's exactly what I was thinking, the 3u would be the better option
, I've been screwing around with 8.10 for the better part of bout 3 weeks, so I'm getting there with understadning my way around the system, just a shame I don't have enough devices to implement lol, but hey ho, the Roman Empire wasn't built in a day.
The advanrage is, that I'll be porting the HDD's from my test system to the core, so at least I've already done some work.
I've looked around both forums and the wiki for the past month and seen the various setups that people have, I've based most of the core around this, and I've seen that people suggest that 4GB of memory for the core is overkill, so I've shortened that to 2GB.
There's just so much that I'd like to do now, and if time and money wasn't a factor, I would lol, but such is life. Also to any of those involved in the project, time is usually something I have enough of, it's the money factor that changes, but I'd be willing to help out with areas if it's wanted.
