huh, well how do hard disk purchases have anything to do with excessive edo
ram prices. As for hard disk purchaesing, what the hell are you doing spending
$200 on a 2 GB drive. Currently stores (Cougar for example) are selling 60GB
drives (7200 RPM, ATA100, westernt digital, or ibm) for $360, for the $200
price range they have 20 GB drives in both those brands. These drives work
fine on old hardware running linux.
