FreeNAS is a FreeBSD distribution that is supposed to similar to a
plug and play NAS solution in the fashion that KnoppMyth is a plug and
play MythTV solution.

FreeNAS is a free NAS (Network-Attached Storage) server, supporting:
CIFS (samba), FTP, NFS, AFP, RSYNC, iSCSI protocols, S.M.A.R.T., local
user authentication, Software RAID (0,1,5) with a Full WEB
configuration interface. FreeNAS takes less than 32MB once installed
on Compact Flash, hard drive or USB key.
The minimal FreeBSD distribution, Web interface, PHP scripts and
documentation are based on M0n0wall.

i know they're not really 'plug & play', but ...
a specialized distro
