unfortunately, david, most of the links on that page you sent don't
work, but one of them did so that was helpful.

we have a chance to buy 18G scsi at $5 or 36G for $25.

what the seller isn't sure about is whether they will be compatible
with the particular server.

the server has a 36G seagate (ST336705LC) in it. the 18G are compaqs
(ultra 3 BD0186398C). do scsi's have any compatibility issues?

also, being older hardware, is there anything to be concerned about
regarding freebsd7. i know we've had problems getting 7 to boot and
install from the older cdroms (6.3 was easy), but the ide hds ran just
fine once 7 was installed.
