Homer,

You should really be looking at SCSI if you want more drives. With SCSI
you can have up to 7+ drives.


Scsi2 is up to 8 devices. Ultra-scsi is up to 16 devices per controller. Most modern controllers and drives are ultra-scsi.

I just recently built a box with 9 scsi drives on a single controller. The price was right and the biggest problem was a case capable of holding that many drives. 18GB scsi drives are readily available for about $10 each.

Good Luck,
James
