I don't completely agree with the SCSI/IDE part. It really depends on what
you are using the server for. For a high-end SQL Server with millions of
transactions a day, you better have a pretty extensive RAID setup. But
is that applicable to a low-traffic web server? I don't think so.
For basic server needs, a PIO4 EIDE harddrive will be more than
sufficient. If you have available memory, the hardware becomes
somewhat moot after caching anyways. I build plenty of SCSI and
IDE systems, and definately prefer SCSI. I'm just saying that
not all servers "need" the extra speed (which in some cases there
isn't any) of a SCSI hard drive.
