I planning to add HP thin client t5720 in my home network. The primary purpose I have in mind is to use it as a NAS with attached USB harddisks .

I have some queries in mind since the thin client computing is new for me :

1. Does HP thin client t5720 has USB 1.1 ports or USB 2.0 port (not very clearly mentioned in its specs)

2. Does it support the installation of regular Windows XP Professional (by installing a 2.5 inch harddisk inside as guided on various websites).

3. Does it support USB boot to install any linux (Ubuntu) installation or a NAS OS like FreeNAS.

Would appreciate if someone using it in a similar environment setup can guide about the queries.
