A friend at work here was/is using FreeNAS for just that purpose. It's a
free Linux-based NAS distribution that uses any hardware that Linux
can handle (AFAIK). He's using software RAID, but it may do hardware
RAID as well, since I know there are Linux drivers for some RAID cards.
Sounds like it's free and simple to use (two of my personal favorites).
