Unless you paid $10k for it, I doubt you got 300GB drives....

Windows 2000 Server, NT4 is god awful old. I'd run linux on it, but I can see that might be to much work for you

Come on 300GB EIDE drive on pricewatch, $274.

Linux server maybe the way to go. Nokia has some Linux servers now. That is making me jump in to Linux and learn the technology.

The guy said its a Dell Poweredge, which means all the drives are probably hot swapable, not some cheap drives off pricewatch. I doubt they are scsi seeing as they dont go past 72GB's or so... I'd highly doubt this guy got 3 300GB drives.

I'm betting that was 300mb not gb.

I also say forget nt4. That shit is old.

At least get 2000 or 2003 or linux.

For that older hardware linux with no gui would be your best bet

Nokia had quite a few linux servers when i was there back in 00', most everyone in Irvine ran FreeBSD and RedHat back then as well.

You can get PowerEdges with Celeron processors.

Largest SCSI you can get on PowerEdges (at least from Dell) is 146GB in "order form".

But a PowerEdge with 8 drive bays (3 300GB drives, 5 100GB drives) is a 4600 or 6400. Which, I've never seen a 4600 in base configuration under 3K. So, it was a bargain at $5.

But, I've also never seen a PowerEdge (except the lowly ones with Celeron processors) being configured with anything but SCSI.

Seagate makes an Ultra 160 SCSI interface drive that is 182 GB, but it will run ya' at least $900.

You've obviously used them before

We have a guy that just bought 2 ultra 320's? ( ~33gb ) 15k rpm drives, and a card for $1,150.
