looking for ideas...

Ok, I know this is a bit off-topic, but I was looking for any ideas as to
make a 3.5" or 5.25" drive bay LED array for my SCSI that I have running.
Something that will allow for both SCSI controller LED's and then 3 or 4
LED's for HDD activity. Also, wondering if anyone knew how to make an LED
that shows Ethernet connectivity and activity to interact with a standard
ATX board and an old AMD PCNet II PCI Ethernet card.
The whole reason I am interested in doing this is that now that I am
running more than one machine tucked under my desk, I'd like to be able to
see if something is wrong without having to open the damned thing or going
desk diving for a failed NIC. Yes, it sounds lazy, but the idea of a front
panel diagnostic isn't so bad and could also be used for other machines,
correct? Besides, lots of blinky lights always impress company when people
or clientele come over, grin. So again, any ideas?
