Doing that you would MOP boot from a cluster member then install the
extendded page and swap for the local disk. If all your doing is that
then any drive over 20mb (but not ST225 or 251 as they are slow!) will
do in the MFM slot. In the past I've found RD52s (quantum D540 30mb)
are a good choice for that service as they are fast and bullet proof.
