Do you need these exact HP drives? If it's a capacity issue, there's
a very valuable technique called "mode page editing" that will let
you adjust drive capacities downward so that you can use large-capacity
recent-manufacture SCSI drives in place of older low-capacity SCSI
drives. It's a very valuable technique when the hardware or OS don't
support large-capacity drives, a very common situation with older hardware.
