Don't do that.  Instead hook up 336 disks.  Lets see.  If using 144gig
SCSI drives, thats a modest 48.4 terabytes.  If instead you use acards
and 400 gig IDE disks, you can expand to a more appealling 134.4

Imagine what you could sock away on that NAS server.

On second thought, maybe you should take out half the SCSI cards and put
in a mixture of FDDI, Myrinet, and FastE cards.

OK, I'm just dreaming obviously.
