My Home NAS, Part 9: NFS Over SSH

If it seems like I'm on an acronym kick, it's not my fault. In the previous bits of my home NAS series, I've shown you all sorts of them: S.M.A.R.T., RAID, LVM, SMB...wait, what happened to SMB?


My Home NAS, Part 4

Having finished assembling the hardware and installing the base operating system for my home-grown NAS device, I've moved on to the fine art of tweaking.  For now, since there isn't a hard drive in the box for major storage, I'm focusing on two things: the long-term stability of the CompactFlash card, and the general security of the machine.

Now that the hardware's put together, the next step is installing the operating system.  As I mentioned earlier, my goal here is to install Debian Etch (actually, for reasons related to my backup policy, I ended up going with Debian Lenny; the install process is almost exactly the same, but you get slightly newer software) onto the onboard CompactFlash card without having to install an optical drive to do it.
