I'm running a server system with Windows 2000 Advanced Server edition. It has five SCSI drives mounted in trays.. each one is a little different. Windows 2000 is ending support in July 2010.. So I want something thats a little more current and compativble with XP Home/Pro, Vista Home and Ultimate.

The big one is a 36gb IBM but there is also a 24gb Hitachi. It also has a 5 drive enclosure connected to it that handles 5 more drives in a rack. Those 5 drives are all RAID SCSI's.. all 18.0 - 18.4gb IBM/Hitachi drives.

It has a Intel Xeon Server board.

I would like to upgrade all the drives to the 36gb IBM if I can get them on ebay.

I want to dual boot linux (ubuntu server or fedora.. and a newer Windows OS.. Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003. etc).

This is mainly so I can use it fod things like a A/V (Windows Media Home) server, ie, storing MP3's, etc. and also so that my mom's PC has ccess to more storage over the home network.. and so I can ethernet or wifi into it from my laptop.

Any suggestions?
