If you want to make a Network Attached Server, then sure it's
easy with Debian.

What kind of machines will you be serving to?  Windows?  If so,
then use the SAMBA package

RAS = NAS over the internet?  If so, SAMBA would still work.  You
will, though, have to use iptables to make a strong and selective
firewall to allow certain IP addresses (or possibly only certain
MAC addresses) in from the outside.
