[SunRescue] Stock drives in the SS20?

I've got a 4gb 'cuda in my SS2 - I can't wait to get a big external box to
shove it in, because it feels like I've got a sun in there (no pun
intended).  Wait a second...  Sun - sun...  And we always thought it was
an acronym for Stanford University Network...  nope, it's a marketable
name for an incredible heat-concentrator!  There's a hack for you -
instead of running the oil furnace to heat water for the radiators, just
build a little heat exchanger out of a pizza box - run your water pipe
through it, and you've solved a whole host of problems:
	heat in the box
	heat in the house
	savings on elex/oil
	security (once your machine is part of the building's piping,
nobody will try to steal it)
