Sorry in advance for cross linking mailing lists, but check out the
MythTV
list. They have got almost this exact topic going on right now.
http://mythtv.org/pipermail/mythtv-users/2009-June/257408.html

The first link talks about an 8 bay setup (with discount!), but later in
the
discussion they talk about larger setups and various other
ideas / implementations including rack-mountable solutions. 

Hope that helps.

Have fun!
