What do you do when you need more ethernet connections, but your router has run out of ports? Simple, buy this. Take a cat5 cable from the back of this into your router and hey presto, you gain some more ports
Up to you .. can't really see a point to an optical drive .. well maybe for running a LiveCD if necessary ?
I'm just setting up the drives now and at the moment I havePrimary Master: CDROMPrimary Slave: ST310212A (10gb hdd)
My thinking was that the CD-ROM would slow down the channel it is connected to.The OS would have to access the temp, var, log (and in case of low memory) swap.This could impact the overall performance. Putting the CD-ROM at the end would also make it easier to replace it with a hdd at a later date for maximum storage without disrupting the rest of the setup.
