    I could see Windows (we aren't talking about just XP, either...) as being used with that many physical drives, but it just seems unlikely that there's any use for that many logical drives.

    Its cheaper to replace all the drives and buy a few say 300GB drives in a server application... Although I have seen a few server systems runnning windows(various versions) most companies would prefer linux for a server situation. The workstations however would run windows most likely. Our school server runs windows 2000 pro for an example of a windows environment. And the bank I did used a Linux, XP pro setup.
    My Current Rigs:
    Antec P180, OCZ Powerstream 520W, DFI nF4 SLI-DR Expert, AMD X2 4400 w/XP120(2.6GHz@1.45v), 2x1GB OCZ Platnium PC3200, BFG 7900GT@592/800(1.6), WD 250GB SATA, Maxtor 120GB IDE, LG DVD/CD Combo(black), Sony DRU-810 DL DVD Burner(black)

    Actually, if you don't have a floppy drive, you can assign the letters to something else. I'm using it on my networked drive, for example.

    As already posted here much earlier ;),

    sorry

    So you can only label a max of 26? That sucks. Aw, screw it. I'm setting up my servers using Red Hat. God bless labeling in Linux. Does anyone have any suggestions as to which version of Red Hat is the best to set up a P2P network? Thanks.
