I think using Ubuntu would be the simplest distro to work with. I also want to configure it to run headless. What all do I need to do to get ready for the transition? I know I need to find drivers and what not. Should I burn them to DVD? USB? DVD for the distro? Several? Any recommendations welcome (within reason).
Why not consider a preconfigured OS like FreeNAS?
Especially if looking at headless.
