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).
