> NAS (Network Attached Storage), the FreeNAS project is a BSD based
> server supporting: CIFS (samba), FTP, NFS, AFP, RSYNC, iSCSI
> protocols, S.M.A.R.T., local user authentication, Software RAID
> (0,1,5) with a Full WEB configuration interface. FreeNAS takes less
> than 32MB once installed on Compact Flash, hard drive or USB key.
> Jay will talk about the role filled by building a NAS server, what is
> needed to build a FreeNAS server, and how to install and configure a
> FreeNAS server in a very short amount of time.
> There will be time for other discussions, so bring questions.
> Orientation: if you're on Conference Center Drive looking at the front
> door, you're looking West.
> You will enter by the rear Commons doors at the Northwest/lower corner
> of the building, so park in any of the nearby lots. Teresa Narvaez, or
> another CSC employee, will let you in, and you'll be a few steps from
> the auditorium.
> Important Note: Be careful when leaving and don't trip on the step
> down just outside the door. Please remind each other, since we all
> tend to be caught up in conversation after a meeting and could easily
> overlook the step.
> Anyone and everyone is welcome to attend NOVALUG's meetings. If you
> need directions, please let me know (truegsegger at csc.com)
> Novalug mailing list
> Novalug at calypso.tux.org
