[Cialug] iSCSI SAN / NAS

I'm in the market for a iSCSI SAN / NAS solution. I have a limited budget of
about $8000. I'm looking at either building it with a 24 drive sata
chassis(not full but available for future growth) and a Asus quad core
opteron board / 3ware controller, etc OR purchasing HPs starter AiO1200R(and
seeing if I can not order drives and put in my own 1 TB sata disks). This
maxes as 12 SATA drives.
The HP solution is simple to admin, windows 2003 based(for good or bad),
Does anyone know of a easy to admin linux based system? I want to run more
things on it than just a san/nas..I'm thinking of running Bacula on it. I've
looked at OpenFiler and FreeNAS. Neither one run a flavor of linux I'm
confortable with(RHEL, CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu are my linux favs). Anyone
have any other suggestions? I'm not familar with rpath linux or if I can run
bacula on it. My issue is I'm not a storage specialist and neither is the
rest of my team so something easy to admin would help...preferable OSS.
