Hi everyone,

I'm thinking about buying a QNAP 420, so can you please help me with
some questions:

1) First of all, will it work?
2) I need transmission, amule, proftpd, samba, murmur, openvpn, squid
and ntop. Does arm-debian have all these?
yes, refer to armel architecture on http://packages.debian.org 
3) Can I install rootfs not on the SATA drives, but rather on the usb
flash-stick, thus leaving all of the drives completely system-free?
Maybe there are some other ways to keep the system off the disks?
i'm wondering how they do it with only 16MB of flash.... anyways, you could always netboot it via tftp from u-boot 
4) Will I manage all this without any experience with debian? :) I used
gentoo for several years though.

Thanks in advance
