HP 6000's are disk cabinets for 9000's or 3000's... they are old.... 
but still useful... It depends on if the drives are trashed or not...

The common drive sizes were 1,2, and 4 GB... 2GB being the most common.

We use them on the oldest HP's at work... there's an H30 that has some, 
and a T Class (not nearly as old) that has a few.... and a K410.
