    Yes, Torben, you are corrent, the IDE drive is just a spare
    used for doing nightly backups of the SCSI system partitions.
    We've been using 80GB/120GB WD drives in many OSB4/CSB5-based
    HP/Compaq systems (mostly this Proliant model, HP E800 and HP
    TC3100) with hand-enabled DMA and have so far had no problems.

    (Btw, this particular ML350G3 came with an add-on cciss hwraid
    card that seemed to exhibit extremely poor performance, so we
    attached all the SCSI drives directly to the onboard AIC7xxx
    and went for /dev/md*.)
