Server recommendations?

It looks like the hard disk in my network server has died - not entirely surprising since it's at least 5-6 years old. It might be possible to replace it, but big IDE drives are getting a bit thin on the ground and likely to be old stock, and the server only supports a maximum size of 500gb, which is peanuts by modern standards.

So I think I need to look for a new server - doesn't need to be huge, 1TB would probably meet my needs for now, but some expandability (such as a second bay) would be nice. I need it to be accessible by Windows, Mac 0SX 10.4, and Linux PCs on a basic Windows network. At the moment I have a 10/100 network, but sooner or later I may want to upgrade to 10/100/1000

Any recommendations?
