Yep. It'd still need new disks though, cause it's running out of space.

Thunder has 4 500G disks, mostly in hardware raid 5 (the OS is in hardware 
10). Although the machine was second hand all the disks are fairly new and 
bought from komplett (the ones it came with died).

Minerva has two 80gb disks in software raid 1 for the OS. It also has 8 
500gb disks connected to the seperate hardware raid controller. On this 
there's two hardware raid 5 arrays of 4 disks each. This performance of 
this controller is "pretty damn awful".

Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his 
dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" 
with "son."			-- Lionel Hutz
