   There's a difference between "comes with IDE unless you request

   This is news to me.  I stand corrected.  I don't use IDE drives in 
production *anywhere* (except my laptop) because of failure rates and

business.  I'm sorry I opened my big mouth, I obviously don't know shit 
about any of this.
