Sorry eh they cost 50 USD for the 10 speed DVD Drive.

However the disk card costs about 295 USD with the disks. Just got the 
first quote in ... that I find a dad on the expensive side... would not 
mind paying a bit less for that.
The dvdrom are not that expensive compared  to what  they used to 
cost...if you consider they are scsi drives... However the parts for the 
Exx00 series of machines are
quite expensive...but eh if I look arround at other quad proc sparc 
systems with 4 GB RAM & enough disk space for / filesystem...like the 
E420R  I'll end up paying the
same amount of money  for it to get it to Belgium. The machine didn't 
cost me much to start with so I'll just pay for the parts...I suppose.
