I saw a note saying the Dec 31/06 was the life end of OPEN-E NAS what does this mean??

Question #1
Does SOHO version support e-Sata Drives and formated with NTFS ?
This would mean with the proviso of additional hardware PCI card install for e-sata
does the SOHO version support this

Qestions #2
does the SOHO Version for anyone to logon NET work need to load any special drives like some of the econo Tiawan NAS boxes?

Question #3
the Computer I am planing to use only has SATA drive connector how can I install the OPEN-E IDE module ?
Will a SATA to IDE adaptor work with OPEN-E SOHO module?

Thank you
