We have a Dell Poweredge 2600 with 4 drives located in positions 0, 1, 2, and 3. All status lights are green on drives and no noticeable problems with data.  The Status light on the front is Blue.  No amber lights whatsoever. The the box has an incessant steady single beep approximately every second. Can't figure it out!! Anyone have any ideas.
