Exactly.  *THIS* is why I use IDE - I can throw an 80G disk in the
machine that serves these lists and web pages for less than $100 nowdays - 
while doing it SCSI would require 2 drives and a PCI SCSI controller.

Plus, if the disk goes bad, *replacing* it is cheaper.  I'd get better
performance with SCSI, but I dont think I'm running into a disk 

  9:21pm  up 13 day(s), 18:18,  3 users,  load average: 0.06, 0.12, 0.21

I could use more RAM, though... (anybody got U5/10 RAM for cheap?)
