if OBP is up-to-date as you say, the machine should run just fine off of
80GB drives (I'm running 80GB drives in an Ultra10 which is basically
the same hardware). I understand that the physical limit is somewhere in
the 150GB range (forgot the actual number) so a max. drive size of 120GB
should render you no unallocated disk space.
Sure makes a nice file server for the home ;)
