Just to chime in here real quickly,

I have a fileserver setup running 4 320 gig drives in a raid5 software
config and a 100mb nic connection. It sits in the basement and my mythtv
sits up stairs by the tv. No problems what so ever with 100 mb. More
than enough for SD. NFS share to the /var/mythvideo directory.
