Bought mini Atom Server

Got my shares, so I decided to buy myself a Supermicro Atom server. I installed a 500GB hard drive and a Qlogic Fiber HBA which will be to use with my fiber channel SAN. Never played with that equipment but I am hoping I can just make it so the server sees each hdd individually, from there I will use Open Filer to create a SAN. I want to avoid using the proprietary SAN's software as this thing is old and could possibly crap out any time. If I stick to something semi standard recovery will be easier. I've also been wanting to play with Open Filer, so this will be a great opportunity.

(don't mind the mess on there, lot of random stuff lol)
