The scarry thing is the quieter 3.5" x 1" drives I mentioned replacing the full height 5 1/4" drives with are Seagate 2GB Barracuda's!

BTW, let me guess, the machine you had the misfortune to use was a Sun Pizzabox, right? Those suckers are noisy with the Barracuda's!

Nonsense, it just means you still have some of your hearing :^)
