[Ubuntu-US-NM] EPC Shared Storage Ideas?

We can go with either IDE or SATA.  If we go with IDE we need to get 
some 5.25 to 3.5 mounting brackets to mount the drives in the 5.25 
bays.  I have and old PCI IDE controller that we can use if we go beyond 
4 IDE drives.  If we go the SATA route I'll pickup and donate one of 
these...

I have one 80gig SATA drive I can donate too.  I have a couple 250gig 
IDE drives I can donate.
