my little idea...

Well, from the overwhelming response already, it seems like a good one =)
Now for an important issue:
I have no real clue of electronics pathways, circuity (board level
repairs), soldering, etc. nor am I knowledgeable of electrical currents,
signalling or anything else necessary. I have quickly realized this.
If I paid money is some form or means, would it be possible for someone to
actually set this up in a provided 5.25" or 3.5" bay blank? I am fully
willing to pay for components, shipping and labor.
The concept is thus: 2 LED's for SCSI controller I/O, 2 LED's for Ethernet
and 4 LED's for SCSI drives. Was hoping for SCSI LED's to be orange,
Ethernet to be yellow and SCSI drives to be possibly blue. I would have to
assume that even the blue LED's can be obtained reasonably from somewhere
to make this work. Again, I am ignorant of electrical work and this is why
I ask for help.

The SCSI controller is an LSI Logic 22910, the Ethernet controller is an
IBM PCI Ethernet adapter (AMD PC-Net II) and I think the SCSI drives for
front panel LED's are pretty standard. I DO HAVE THE SHEETS ON ALL OF THESE.

Anyone interested? Please email me in private:

I am a computer technician and network troubleshooter. I am in NO way a
rocket scientist or experienced avid hobbiest like some of my brethren
here. Many of you have this knowledge and experience, please help if you
can. ...BTW Doc, yes, I really do have too much time on my hands
sometimes... when I am not commuting 2 hours each way to work and putting
in 42hr+ work weeks. The weekends become a lull and boredom sinks in...
that is when my damned mind rears it's ugly head and starts thinking (I
hate when it does that).
