>> But that is likely to be the case for a NAS, too - it may not be a PC, but it's still a computer running an OS;

Yes, but the burden's on the NAS, not any of the "working" PCs.

>>A cheapo PC with a lean Linux on it and several internal and/or external hard drives might do just as well - and be cheaper, too.

Quite likely. And would provide a spare PC. And it could do print server duty and perform other tasks. On the down side, it wouldn't be plug and play.

Gigabit's nice, isn't it? ;-)
