make sure where ever you get your dvr from it comes with a hard drive i know a friend who bought a dvr for £130 and then had to buy a hard drive for £50 so just make sure you double check m8.its for a house 3/4 cameras outside, night vision and possibly wireless.
cool , i`m no linux god but i do like a dabble, how easy was zoneminder to setup? gonna have a looky into this now, i have some thin clients knocking about which will be excellant for this sort of thing, really small, low power , ive modded them both so they can have hdds put in em........

Ubuntu 10.04 + Zoneminder
2 x ccd cams (weatherproof) with 25m night vision off ebay
2 x 10m RG59+2 cables off ebay
4 x BNC crimpy things ebay
4 port PCI CTTV card - dealxtreme
came to about £100 for parts.

zoneminder is excellent and gonna add a wireless or IP camera to front of house.
