Understood. I don't -want- to use NFS, but nobody else has given me
any other options. I tried iSCSI+OCFS2, and that had some odd issues
and I am not sure it was reliable enough for a low-latency web
environment with millions of files.

I'm pretty OCD, I'd like all my machines to match, and I have the
ability right now to get them synced up before I start using them.

Also, would FreeBSD or Linux be better for the dual or quad core? Last
answer I got was nginx probably works better under FBSD. NFS works
better under FBSD too. My NFS server is already FBSD...
