Hi all,
I have a Dell PowerApp Web 120 with 2GB RAM running Server 2000, I have some other spare drives and was curious if they would work in either this box or a Dell Power Edge 1400SC with a gig of RAM and running Server 2003. The drives I have availabe are:

1.) Fujitsu Limited 73 GB 10k RPM U320
2.) Maxtor Atlas 10K 4 (not sure how big it is but guessing 73GB)
3.) Eserver xSeries 73GB (I know this is an IBM product, but will it work in a dell box?

We're really going to use one of these boxes just for storage. Any help would be appreciated.

SCSI is SCSI ,you just need to make sure you have the correct termination.

Remember with some SCSI controllers,the speed of the SCSI  buss will run at the speed of the slowest device.

The newer Adaptecs allow for mismatched speeds and can compensate.

Your Server should be able to be setup with all those hard disk.  If you setup a RAID you might want to double check if the RAID support those hard disk.
