If you're handy with power tools, you can make your own. This involves buying the metal racks and the corner pieces for Guitar Center or somethign like that and a sheet of MDF board at Home Depot.

Thats what i thought the cheapest way would be, also i would be able to make it the size i wanted

Right. The mounting brackets can be expensive depending on where you buy them from, so it'd probably be in your best interest to shop around.

In the second one I don't like how he put the PSU effectively on the outside of the unit, and als the choice of Mini-ITX boards. They're good boards, but only come with 100 MBit ethernet which, for a fileserver, is *WAAAAY* too slow. There are Mini-ITX boards out there that can take a Pentium M and include gigabit ethernet. You'd be much better off with one of those.
