Thank you Adrien, Rick, Peter, Daniel et al for your recommendations. I've 
learned a lot from what you've written.

I think I'll refine my research and look for LVD-capable SCSI drives, perhaps 
using fewer of them as they may cost more. I appreciate the perspective about 
SATA being the now and future and SCSI largely being a technology of the 
past. I just thought I'd use the SCSI as the motherboard supports it and I 
had such good luck with SCSI in the (ummmm..) 1980's and early 1990's.

I have other boxes where I can use SATA.
I'll let you know how it turns out.
Thanks again.
