Where can I get step-by-step directions on how to build a SAN, both in technical and layman's terms?
Interesting you should mention that. I am in the middle of writing one of those "for dummies" series books. It should be called "Storage Area Networks for Dummies". Look for it in the Feb. 2003 time frame, I hope.
In the meantime, go to: http://searchstorage.techtarget.com/specialOffers/0,290745,sid5,00.html for a listing of all the current plain English books on SANs.
