Hi All,
    Looks like it will be debian. 
On closer inspection of the two 120gig drives one seems to be missing !!!
Misco are sending me the missing drive and a 512 stick to say sorry.

Thanks for the feed back I will let you know how the install goes.


ps google search for howto's on standby

I'm no expert here but I think not having to worry
about updates or dependencies makes Debian an obvious,
no fuss workhorse. Beware the hardware support if your
hardware is really new. I find that you generally have
to wait a year for support for new hardware to filter
