Need manual URL/hardcopy for HP Netserver LX Pro 6/200 serve

My present IBM PC Server 320 (PCI/EISA) has an IDE interface on the mobo and
works fine and dandy with HD's and other IDE devices, except that it
overrides boot from SCSI so it's turned off and all devices are SCSI
predominantly. My old Dell 4066/XE server was the same way, but IDE was slow
on it - never used it as I had plenty of SCSI devices on hand.

  Hmmm. I wouldn't know about the udma issue. My new desktop is the
first IDE system I've had in several years. All the SMP boxen I've had
or administered were SCSI, and the only IDE PPro I've ever had aything
to do with was a Dell desktop. It was strictly an end-user box, and I
wasn't in a position to benchmark it.
  I still believe Intel would have been better off developing the PPro
than going with the PII.
