Hi haliparotin,


I haven't used a better storage distro other than openfiler. I recommend it only in case you are going to use it for storage server.

A easy step by step installation step is available at http://www.openfiler.com/learn/how-to/graphical-installation . The distro is suited for storage and does not contain unnecessary services.


If you are looking for a reliable operating system go for redhat enterprise linux 5 or centos 5. The linux kernel supports almost all scsi disks.
