Well, the ten 9/18 GB drives part makes it sound a little excessive for a  
webserver, and keep in mind that you're running ten OLD hard drives, so a  
failure would most likely come sooner than it would for newer drives.   
Keep this in mind when setting up arrays; as tempting as it'd be to RAID 5  
the same-sized drives, you might end up in a bind when one disk fails...  
or two.

What are the CPU and RAM specs?  The E450 is a rather good box (for its  
time) when decked out, and having two SCSI controllers means you can also  
better separate the OS from the data.
