A few pointers if you will, (pretty new to all this):-

I want to buy a NAS for backup but mainly to run 7.4.1 24/7(currently runing through Vist laptop but obviously lose 7.4.1 when I shut down), ultimately trying to create a digital home environment to stream music, films and photos.

No idea which one is best but have come across a Synology DS409slim, gets good reviews and has capacity for 4 HDD's

Can I use a Synology DS409slim to run 7.4.1? can only see NETGEAR as a NAS option)?
If so, how do I do this? (same way as I run it through my Vista laptop?)

All advise welcome, thanks in advance

Of couse, all synology products support Squeezebox. The only differences are the speed and the number of HDD it supports.
