Gotta inquire about the hard drives though...  Standard ATA-133 will choke at 
about 8-10 clients if you're serving the /home directory.

There have been multiple threads here regarding SCSI vs IDE vs SATA -- you 
pick a side you like. :)  Honestly though, ATA-133 will not suffice in a big 
server situation that you want to serve many clients.
