Re: Single Board Computer HD Sharring
Having two computers accessing the same hard drive is pretty much guaranteed to produce errors - there should be one and only one OS in control of the drive, otherwise there'll be consistency errors in the disk caches/buffers of the two OSes.

(Ideally, it *should* be possible to implement the networking over the PCI bus, which would be super fast, but Google hasn't turned up any information on whether this is supported.)
Don't tell me to get a life.
I had one once.
