Synopsis Invited Feedback Importance (/10, author rated :-) )

Shows with pictures how to build your own PC from scratch and then set it up as a network backup server.

(Dec, 2005: Note that rsync is a much better way of synchronising disks).

Pete Biggs in the letters column of LinuxFormat 40 made a couple of very good points about this article. First of all, make sure the processor is attached to the heat sink with thermal paste, (usually there but with a protective cover which needs removing - *** WARNING: Malcolm Watts in Oz makes the point that this can be pretty nasty stuff so be careful not to handle it ***). Second, my description of IDE was less than perfect. Make sure you separate slow and fast devices on different IDE ports as an IDE bus runs at the speed of the slowest device on it. Thanks to Pete and Mal for useful feedback.6
