Yes, I've checked. My Netra X1 once had a second drive (the IDE cable
is still in the case), but the second drive/tray were removed.

I was pleased to see that my unit had the full compliment of RAM (4x
256 Meg - it's a 400 MHz CPU system), but I was not a winner in the
"spare drive tray" lottery... (Or, sadly, the Power Ball Lottery

Glad to hear the IDE seems better, the limit, BTW, is 137 Gig as I
recall, but that's fine - one or two New Old Stock 80 Gig IDE drives
are all I plan to put in there... First I need to up my current
Install Server to serve-up the latest Solaris, then I can throw it on
this box and migrate the images over.
