CorpSys on eBay sells FC drive arrays and host adaptor cards (I
think they may be the OEM for NetApps--at least all their gear
comes from the same suppliers by the look of it).  I haven't looked
at their sales recently on eBay--they may sell the arrays w/out
drives so you can slap those in there.

If you search the archive there was a big discussion a year or maybe
two ago on rescue about how to use FC disks directly using a cable
converter and a host adaptor.

Anyone have a closer ballpark on that date?

Newer Sun are FC--my V880 at $ork for instance (like to have one
of those puppies at home--very easy to work on for the basics).
