Sorry I missed the start of the thread. I would suggest you to buy a simple
IDE-to-SCSI Raid Appliance. You don't have the trouble with sizing the Power
supply. You get a neat chasis with plug-able disks and you also get the
speed of SCSI and the ability to plug it into every server you desire. The
prices are quite reasonable. I asume you need it at work, cause more than
4x36GB isnt realy needed for private persons, even if they have a large mp3
archive :)

BTW: I would suggest to use only Master-Disks on those IDE Channels, since
those are much faster. One IDE-to-SCSI Solutoin I saw had 8 IDE Channels for
8 Disks, so no slave needs to be used.
