Journal Noryungi's Journal: Crazy idea of the week: Slackware NAS.

Here is the idea: create a derivative of Slackware, dedicated to NAS (Network Attached Storage).
Everything would be Slackware-based, and a server for NAS should be able to be installed within, let's say 30-45 minutes, using XFS for its filesystems.
The server would come with a full toolbox, including some packages not usually found under Slackware.
Eventually, the whole thing would be managed through a web interface. At first, the only interface would be "dialog" boxes, accessed through SSH.
The whole thing is going to go live on my wiki, as soon as I sort out the very last problems with my Slackware 13 x86_64 newest machine...
