[linux-elitists] GNU/Linux box as a RAID device?

You could also put a gigabit Ethernet card in the Linux machine, run
Samba on it, and connect the Mac to the Linux box via crossover cable.
You could even expose the RAID to many Macs, if you have a real switched
gigabit network.

There may be latency and/or bandwidth problems with this idea, depending
on how demanding the video application is. But regular old Ethernet and
Samba make a simple, compatible and cheap solution if you can get away
with it.
