  Freenas is the way do it.
Very simple and fast to get up and running on most hardware platforms.  
Supports E-sata,USB, IDE, RAID configurations.
Can use an old pc laying around but recommend more up2date hardware to 
meet the demands of a large system.
Dual GigE ports with mtu modified will push/pull more bandwidth than 
most needs required.
