What i want to do in full detail
Not any time soon, this is probably going to be a long term project, but a friend of mine has an SCSI array as she calls it, in the array she has about 3 terabytes of space. She has sent me to the wiki site before, and i want to know, with SCSI may i bridge/connect my current computer tower to it, and once connected, use the SCSI array as a storage bin for files on my parents network. This of course would take some time and patience. I'am not looking for a pre-made network storage drive, cause i want the ability to learn more from the programs i would have to use with it, in order to benefit from the large amount of space and speed of each drive.
another possibility would be to physically build it, and learn about it from personal experiance. it seems thats the best way i learn about computers, taking the time and putting them together. i believe my friend uses Fedora to run her array, but i'am not to educated on the motherboard she uses. She also uses a IBM tower etc.
that is what i would want to do, build it to learn how it works and how to use it. then, use it to the best of my ability and possibly start a server.
my idea of a server would be that, an online bridge to host a website or number of domains on the hard drives for online browsing. either that or for a network storage drive as mentioned before. if i'am dreaming, please let me know, cause i may be wanting a bit more then i can actually handle.
