NAS a old box !

NASLite v1.x is a collection of single floppy disk based Network Attached Storage (NAS) Server Operating Systems designed to transform a basic computer into a dedicated file server. NASLite v1.x is intended primarily for use in a small business or home office network. By design, NASLite v1.x is a community file server and does not support features such as user management , the ability to join domains or disk quotas. However, it is very easy to set-up and use.

Basic System Requirements

NASLite v1.x is a network file server, so a fast computer is usually not necessary. Basic requirements are:

* 486DX or better processor
* PCI bus
* 16M or more of RAM
* 1 to 4 IDE fixed disk drives (any size)
* PCI or on-board network interface adapter
* 3.5" floppy disk drive
