What to do with Linkstation (120gb)?
I have a Linkstation which is an v1 model (purchased mid 2004, 120gb).
It is really now nearly full, and I am moving some (most) data from it
to another solution (a custom made Linux box).
However, I am wonting to still use the Linkstation for backups of a
Windows 2003 system, which takes around 50gb.
I also was wondering how far the Linux development had come on,
specificly, I wanted to install an MTA and put a mailing list server
(Mailman) on the box?
I can't do this on my main Linux box due to other apps being on the box,
and I wanted a separate box for the mailing lists.
Anyone done this before, or can give me some pointers?

which is a mostly pure Debian Linux, then do an:
apt-get install mailman
Then configure it to your heart's content.
I've never run mailman myself, but I did have an MTA running on my
LS for awhile (it still is running, kind-of). It should all work
just fine for you.
You'll have to design your own backup system however, perhaps just
a "cron" task running "tar" or "zip" over a samba share? or you
could push it through a share from your windows machine if you like.
