I do, definately, see your point. ;)  After looking at our archive (a 20gig
partition), half full, most of which consists of compressed audio (mpeg3,
vorbis) and desktop graphics at 1280x1024, I imagine it would be quite
possible to fill 'er up ;)

IDE64's limited to the ATA-2 spec, right? (8.4gig IIRC)  Let's go beyond
that with the next interface, be it IDE, scsi, usb, whatever.
