I suggest OpenSolaris + ZFS.  The commands are simple and the ability to
add storage later is a big plus.  Also ZFS has a built-in integrity
checker option to ensure that blocks written are consistent.

Get an old machine, put a bunch of IDE or SATA drives in it, install,
you are done.  Anything with 256MB RAM and a P3-500 CPU or so will work
