Ditto, i have a quad ppro 200 with 12 18.2GB drives on a mylex raid 
controller (two six-drive RAID5's striped together) running linux as my 
main fileserver.  It's slated for replacement sometime soon though.  I 
have much faster stuff sitting around doing nothing, and a couple of 
300-500GB drives.  And somehow, one of my processors or processor boards 
is flaky, right now it's only recognizes 3 of the 4 processors.
