    I am a total n00b when it comes to Linux, so bear with me please.

    What is the largest HDD size the latest Fedora will recognize?

    if you use ext2 or ext3, the limits are up in the terabytes. How much are you looking to throw into it?

    What you plan on using the HD' for? Are you going to software Raid it?

    Just curious, has nothing to do with the type of file system. I would say to use ext3 that way it has journaling.

    Backing everything up in the office to one machine. Our unix server/2003 server and all the workstations. Each have their own backup as it stands but we want to switch it to a central backup location.

    Thanks for the info.
