If you open up a copy of Linux-Journal you'll see an add from raidzone.
They've been selling 1 TB IDE-RAID systems for more then a year.
ANd the price isn't too bad either (I dunno what your idea adds up to)

I've never used their systems (yet) but it seems interesting.
Check them out on www.raidzone.com
