I still believe in the superiority of SCSI, for practical reasons (most
notably IRQs!), but I'll stick with a single IDE drive since I cannot
afford 18 GB SCSI drives (gee, some Fujitsu MAE would be fine), but I
can afford 20 GB IDE.

Without SCSI, I would however be lost. Two tape drives, CD-ROM,
CD-Writer. Huh, where would IDE put the hard disk?
