250G disks are common now, and 300G disks are becoming available.  I expect 
that such disks were not avilable when the machine was installed, so 
replacing old disks with new should be a solution to this problem.

Another option is USB enclosures.  You can get cheap USB 2.0 enclosures for 
IDE disks.  Adding one of those with a 60G disk is cheap and easy.  If the 
motherboard doesn't support USB 2.0 then the disk could still be used for 
less speed critical files (at 1MB/s).
