What card and software do you use to get the videosignal in to the Linux 
box? (I mean what capture card?) I've been looking for a sollution like 
this too and since I'm familiare with FreeBSD/Linux and many other Unix OSs 
this would be a perfect sollution for us.

Is the Linux box set up with Samba? If not, how do you share the disk?

I want to hook this system up to a filmscanner and output directly to the 
harddrive raid for editing without needing to go through the VTR stage. Is 
the stored video compressed?
