    Note this howto is about 5 years old now. If I were building an illumos-based storage server today, I'd be more likely to use as a distribution one of:
    1. OmniOS - Great lightweight general purpose UNIX OS. Installs to disk.
    2. SmartOS - Next generation hypervisor OS, boots from ephemeral source (PXE, USB stick, CD, etc) and sets all storage aside into a zfs pool for guest zones.
    I've been running SmartOS on an N40L for years with a SmartOS guest zone running Netatalk and sharing files out to my Macs. I'm in the process now of re-architecting this storage onto OmniOS for the benefit of having a more general purpose global zone and super easy IPv6 implementation.
