ext3 on it.  ext3 is horribly slow as of late.

For larger disk sets, rackmount chassis are usually the best way to go.
Supermicro makes some great 1u 4drive sets, and there are various
vendors that make 2u (9/12 drive) and 3u (9/12/16 drive) chassis.

Jesse, could you recommend some specific cases and comment on the ext3 thing?

I've done some looking but simply cannot find stuff I like for a 12-or-more-drives rackmount case. I'm not looking for the space shuttle here, since the thing is for a home or SOHO server... but I would like to put in a 2-drive RAID-1 array for the OS, a 12-drive RAID-5 array, and a CD-RW... so it looks like I need 15 bays to build my dream home system.

And I've only used ext2 earlier and now ext3 on Linux, so I have no idea what else I could/would/should use.

Your comments much appreciated.
