More on topic to Conspire, the Dell Optplex that we set up as a samba 
server the
other week at the CABAL meeting is working well at work. I still need 
to work on
a few permission issues but otherwise it works well. As a result, the 
boss ok'ed my
getting a couple of  160GB drives to set up the second box and later 
retrofit the
first box.

I am putting the two Samsung 160GB IDE drives into the second Dell 
Pentium II 266 box and am going to put Debian into it with software 
RAID1 to mirror
the drives. I will need to get a Y cable for powering the second drive 
and I have
changed out the IDE cable for the second IDE channel which only had a 
drive connector for a longer one with two drive connectors. I changed 
the CD ROM
from cable select to slave so both hard disks will be masters on their 
channels. I will have to fashion a bracket to hold the second disk 
drive as the
computer did not come with the bracket for the second hard disk, though 
made them.
