Yes - you many also want to look at 3ware their IDE cards (which can
handle 4 8 or 16 disks). That is an easy/cheap way to add some IDE disks
to your machine. See http://www.ironsystems.com/ and ASA computers for
some inspiration and configs. We've used the latter for 'cheap' but low
quality storage in the 0.5-2Tb for things like large datafiles. For
certain things it can be very effective and under the 5k sort of value.
