System is back up and running with a new drive. (Hey, did you know you can fit 5 3.5″ drives in a 3u that wasn’t designed for it?) 🙂 Definately can’t handle any more in terms of power needs. Next time I need to grow, It’ll be time for a new case and everything.
Debian came back perfectly, only issues I had (besides *very* cramped spaces) was my idiocy of always forgetting which end is master and slave on an IDE cable (now that I have to put two disks on one ide channel).
I definitely remember why I didn’t want to be an ‘IT’ specialist 🙂
