Would this Via Nano motherboard make a good file server?

the motherboard on the first page.

I know the article says it is just a reference board, but the one it shows has a CompactFlash Adapter and 4 SATA ports.

Wouldnt it be nice to install the OS to like an 8 or 16 gig CF card,then hook up 4 SATA drives for storage? (tho good luck finding a right case for that...)...


I wondering if the system itself would be too slow,even for a home file server tho.

Yes it would, but the more affordable solution is NAS.
