Hi all,

Several Compaq DS20 servers are available for free in the San Jose/Silicon
Valley California area. There is also a LARGE amount of external associated
disc drives available.

All are rack mount form-factor. No front bezels.

Note: LOCAL San Jose CA area pickup only before 8/23. No shipping, no
delivery, no holding for future pickup - sorry. First-come, first served.

Please contact me off list if interested. If the community could use these
that would be great.
