I am planning to re-use one of our Dell servers (PowerEdge 850, Celeron 2.6GHz, 4GB RAM)as a dedicated print server.  There is quite a bit of printing at the business, with approx 30 laserjets currently in production.  I would like to know if the current disk config of two mirrored SATA 80GB drives will be sufficient for medium-high print serving work.  Basically, I would like to know if the print serving process is disk intensive and would be better served by a SAS or SCSI type interface.  

Thank you for your insight!
