  1. Drive capacity = 1 TB File size (mostly) = 200 MB - 300 MB mkfs.ext3 -c -b 1024 -J size=1 -m 0 -O large_file,dir_index,^filetype,^has_journal,^journal_dev,^resize_inode,sparse_super,ext_attr -v -L [label] -T largefile4 [device] Is setting block size to 1024 bytes ideal?
  2. Currently I don't have any Windows box, and my only Windows box is down, I'm planning on updating my Windows installer before reformatting. Is it possible to run nLite using WINE? If yes, any additional files I need to run it on WINE?
  3. Thanks Zxian, I manage to find an E2160 CPU. Will a 1GB RAM suffice? Do I need a Dual-Channel, or a Single-Channel is enough? EDIT: I notice that the ram I had were DDRs not DDR2. I got myself a 1GB Single Channel one, since that is the only smallest available. But I was a bit slow, prices fluctuated so fast, that I got to spend a little bit higher than what I have canvas Thanks guys (especially Zxian, for bearing with me ) , I hope my first file server is a success
  4. Thanks Zxian, I'll try to see if I can fit it to my budget. BTW, I also need to change my Processor since it will not be compatible. Should I get a Core 2 Duo or just a P4 Incase a Core 2 Duo, I think I be getting Intel Core 2 Duo E4700 since its price difference w/ Intel Core 2 Duo E4400 is just minimal.
  5. It seems all old hardware I have are still usable except for the board. Is the Gigabyte GA-946GM-DS2 board to much?
  6. Some old parts are still usable (i.e. Video Card, Power Supply, Case, Fans). For the ram, I've not yet test them w/ memtest.I'm planning to use it as a storage device. I'm planning to use it as a storage device. (a simple second computer with hard drives). The HDDs I have are Western Digital & Seagate w/ varying sizes (80GB - 300GB). They are all SATA interface.
  7. Hi, I'm planning to build a file server since it's my first time building a file server, I like to ask help from experience members of the board. What I currently have are SATA HDDs for the rig. Here are links to local stores: PC Gilmore PC Express RSun VillMan * As of this post the estimated conversion rate is 1 Philippine Peso = 45 US Dollar.
  8. My little question have cause a big ruckus among MSFN members Thanks for all the opinions (& debates ) I was just curious coz I saw PC cases with vertical mounting position for HDD.
  9. nmx, thanks for the information, I'll keep that in mind
  10. Is there any difference between installing HDD in vertical position against horizontal position? If there is, what position is better?
  11. there are no desktop pc where I am right now, only laptops. I'm not planning on burning anything, just want to see if it runs (check if it works or not). And thanks, I remembered there is a working external burner somewhere here, maybe I can borrow it and put the DVD drive there and test it.
  12. Is it possible to attach a 5.25 drive to a 3.5 enclosure interface? I'm planning to test a new bought 5.25 DVD writer if it is working, but right now I don't have any desktop to connect it to. So I'm planning to connect it to my external 3.5 drive enclosure. The question is, is it a good idea? (the voltage match but I'm not sure, any suggestion?)
  13. Same here, I'm using Liteon and it never failed me even once except when there are power outage .
  14. Is that statement true? ****, if it is... oh well, if I only knew... all my DVD are high speed (16x).
  15. Yeah I know, I was just using it as an example, because enclosure don't specify any size limit that I just want to confirm if they can hold more, for future recycling of enclosure Thanks guys
