        I wouldn't say 'impossible' at all. I would add that the prices you're seeing may be a regional thing.

        I say this because the local (Seattle) used place, RE-PC, has boxfuls of 1-2 gig SCSI drives for about $5 each. Granted, they're getting harder to find -- most of what I see now are in the 1-4 gig range. However, I do see a few sub-1gig units.

        If you're not talking about huge quantities, I could probably work on picking up some for you. Let me know.
