You are right, I forgot about that one.  One went for a surprising
amount on ebay recently.

But, picture this octane configuration:
Dual R12k (any speed)
strip the graphics
add a quad SCSI card (4xUW SCSI channels)
add a PCI cardcage
Add two ISP1080 PCI SCSI cards.
Add one PCI FDDI card
Add one GigE PCI card in a XIO carrier
Add qfe XIO card (probably the most expensive part, but then, those PCI-XIO
carriers aren't cheap either)
Add 1 hippi card (optional, if you have other hippi gear, certainly more
expensive that the QFE XIO) or alternatively, another QFE XIO or another
GigE card.

Now, that would be a nicely mosterous file server.
