I have a 1.8Ghz CPU, and 2 GB of ram, so I should be alright.
Yes, its sata. I've not even been able to get the BIOS to read it. And pfsense does not mount it. And then even if it was mounted, I don't know how to partition it. So, I got a lot of work to do. I've read online and it seems other people have had this same problem with this hard drive. The way my setup is, I have a 6GB IDE hard drive and a 160GB Sata Hard Drive. The sata drive is connected to a sata controller card. And its just not working. I'm thinking maybe I should update my BIOS, or install openBIOS. However, I do not know if that will help it or make it worse.
As far as the videos, if you do it manually without the cachevideo thing, would it be able to cache all videos and mp3s and such, like this cachevideo thing does? The cache video is supposed to work on youtube, google, facebook, etc. etc. Not just youtube.
I'll keep reading the forums...
I've done a lot of tests... and it looks like my sata controller card is bad. I think I need to forget about the sata and go with these IDE hard drives that I have. I've got two IDE hard drives, one 40GB and one 60GB. The forums do talk about configuring squid to use one of the hard drives, but is there anyway I can configure squid to use them both at the same time???
It seems that the speed improvement of IDE and sata for our small network, is not much of a difference.
