Hard Drive

New Equipment

We got some new equipment for the classroom.  I am missing hard drives on the parts because they were taken from a company, but the servers do POST correctly which means they work.   I will be searching eBay for some good deals on SCSI hard drives.  Preferably some hot swappable hard drives.  I need about 10 and I would like 20 so that I can set up RAID 5 on some of the machines.
Here are some pictures of them.  Chris Bach (@DataStorm) helped me with the setup.
The oldest one is a Pentium Pro and I plan to install Server 2003 on it just to see if it can actually run.  A Pentium Pro is the minimum requirement for Server 2003.  Look for another update sometime soon.
