I've got some Dell PowerVault 650F (some sort of bastard child of 
Dell/Calriion, IIRC) that are stuffed with 10 9 Gig FC-AL drives, I'm tempted 
to upgrade them, but 10x 36.4 Gig = about a $60 320 SATA drive[0]...

AFAIK, the Dell 650F are only supported through Win2K, 2003 is not an option. 
Anyone have an interest in these? I have two I think, plus a UPS/battery pack 
for them (1U power unit w/batteries)...
