    No hard drives in the box.  It looks like the drives can
be hooked up individually or in pairs.  I don't know much about
firewire but it has one long cable and one short cable that
looks as though it is meant to be an connector between the
drives.  Each drawer (meant for 5.24) hard drives has its own
ide connector and power plug.

    Not a big rush but when you get back from your family 
business it would be a good idea to pick it up.

    I got it in hopes it might be useful to your project so
I will save myself more effort than finding a place to put
it where I won't fall over it in the night.

    Have a pleasant journey,
