I've started using dd to store an images on an internal ftp server. I
had an extra P3 and motherboard, so I set it up with 4 80gb hard
drives. Lots of room. I've started dumping all of the stuff that I've
downloaded over the past 10-15 years (back to the BBS days). Gets rid
of all of the clutter of floppy disks, CD, etc.
