The fun part is that if you had that IBM-labelled drive installed in
an IBM server and the drive failed under warranty and you called IBM,
they wouldn't be able to figure out the replacement part number even
with a *sixteen*character* model number.  They also wouldn't know the
RPM speed of the drive.

Been there, done that, didn't even get a blue tshirt.  Grrrrr.
