Just remembered: I initially tried to set up our server machine with Ubuntu running from USB memory stick, but that didn't work so well - Ubuntu kept crashing. I think that was actually due to the Xen kernel it was running rather than the fact it was running from USB, but has anyone else had any experience / success in running Ubuntu from USB storage? I'm not looking to run a Xen kernel on this machine, it's just going to serve files via Samba, so should I be okay?

All those drives are going to need cooling, which the Antec cases do quite well, but I also want to be able to hot-swap a failed drive with minimal downtime if possible. I see Maplin have some front-loading drive caddies that include cooling fans for around £30 each, but I'm worried that those having SATA 1 connections and SATA II disks might cause performance issues. Is it actually an issue, or if the on-board ports on the RAID controller are SAS/SATA II running at 3Gb/s, split in to four SATA connections via a splitter cable to plug disks in at 0.75Gb/s each, is it not going to make any difference?
