I'd make a strong reccommendation of SCSI drives, specifically Seagate
Cheetah drives. They're insanely fast, but more importantly, they have a
10-year warranty - for a reason. I've never seen one of these drives fail,
even if they're in setups that run with heavy disk activity 24h/day for years
on end. (They're also what Sun ship in their HW RAID boxes).
