The Goal
- set up a file server
- configure five SATA HDD for RAID 5
- Have three main files (mount point?), (two passworded)
- Have this accessible on LAN to windows 7 Desktops

The Plan
- Install Ubuntu 10.10 server software
- mount and format remaining HDD
- configure RAID 5.
- configure /etc/fstab file to automatically mount all HDD at boot
- install samba
- - make one open access
- - make two password protected

is this the best way to achieve the goal?
can you please suggest any further reading?

Many Thanks
