I run a fanless Qube2 with Etch and a 300GB disk as a NFS fileserver,
mainly to stream my music with Amarok over the local network. It never
had a problem, with an uptime of around 300 days now. The only issue is
the slow network, even with a PCI networkcard, but for music streaming
its fast enough. Otherwise a lovely, quiet and stable little machine.
A 750GB disk should probably work just as well. Let us now how it goes.
