Hmmm. OK. But I can get a 200 GB disk for NOK 675, or USD 100, and that 
will be all the disk this motherboard will ever see, I suspect... So, I 
don't know. My data isn't worth a lot, really, because I have 
redundancy and backup. My time _is_ worth a lot, but I enjoy the 
challenge of figuring out what to do about it too... So, that's why I'd 
like to grok first and act later... :-)
