    Only Windows PCs (2000, XP, and 2003) can access it. Special software is required to access it.

    The price is right, and the fact that you can install any IDE drive that you want is nice. I have so many 20 gig drives laying around, it is silly. This would be a cheap way to add a 20 gig server to my network.
