Actually, I have *two* of these beasts, and the price of SCA 73.4GB hard
drives on ebay have now come down enough, so I have 12 (!) 73.4GB hard
drives in each, with hardware RAID.
They both run NetBSD very, very, very fast. Four processors each, 1GB
RAM each. Each has a 2-channel RAID card with each channel running half
the array. The on-board SCSI controller runs the boot disk on one
channel, and the CD-ROM on the other.
