If you are going to get into SGI stuff, it is worth heading over to the 
nekochan forums at forums.nekochan.net, if you haven't already.  You 
might not find the install media there (strict no software trading 
policy) but that could be a good place to find parts.

Anyway, what sort of SCA HDDs are you looking for?  I'm fairly certain I 
have some 9 and 18 gig drives that will work in an Octane, if you are 
interested in stuff that small.  I may have a 73 gig drive or two as 
well.  I don't think I have any spare Octane style HD trays though.
