   Nothing is wrong with them. I want to connect up a couple more drives on
my system and checkout some drives to send to someone else that's missing
some. I expect I could hook up drives easily if I ignored the adapater
cards and strange addressing but I'm trying to understand what intel was

   To answer an earlier question: I think all of these use the 800-3 model
drives. That's what I remember seeing in a couple of them but I haven't
checked two of the boxs and it's chore to get them out of the rack and then
out of the cases to read the model number.
