media server?

view story

http://www.unix.com – Hi All, I have so many picture of my kids, and movies and videos. I really want to create media server. After doing some research on the internet, I am going to install Ubuntu media server. This old server I have has two disk drive. I was thinking about mirroring that. After that I want to add external USB drive for the data. Just want to find out if that will work. Do you think it's going to slow? This server will be directly connected to Linksys router, users will connect to it using Wifi. Please advise. Thanks. (HowTos)
