Anyhow, the old 18G ata33 WD hard drive I had was filling up and getting bogged down. Unfortunately, it wasn't just a matter of making space there plain old wasn't enough of it. So in the RagE way of thinking, instead of simply adding another drive, a RAID array was due!
Once again off shopping we go and purchased two 30G, Western Digital, 7200rpm, ata100 drives and a Promise FastTrac100Pro kit. I had only wanted the card but the fellow that sold it to me said he could only get it in this boxed set:
Originally, I wasn't going to use these SuperSwap hard drive enclosures as being able to hot-swap a drive in a striped array is not something you want to do. But remember what I said about worrying about adding another drive when the time came? Well that time was now and I had no where to put an extra drive (oops). So what the hell, I tore 'em down and got 'em painted. And I must say they look just fine.
So, here we are again.
