I have a Dell Poweredge 2800 that's looking for a home.

2 Xeon 3GHz CPUs
Integrated Raid
Supports up to 8 scsi drives (hot swappable). Currently has 0 hard drives.
Floppy drive and IDE cdrom drive
Dual power supplies
Dual integrated gigabit ethernet
Also has 2 Intel PCI 100 mbit cards installed

is how to convert the backplane to take SATA disks instead of SCSI.

It's surprisingly quiet for such a monster of a machine. I though it would
sound more like an aircraft carrier. It sure is heavy though. I just
plugged it in and it booted right up.

Somebody make me an offer.
