Barely worth it anymore, these days you can find an Intel Server Chassis SR2300 and Intel Server Board SE7501WV2 (SCSI) for $1,500; it's a 2U dual-Xeon dual-channel DDR with 6 hot-swap scsi bays. I have to say that I get impatient when I work on anything that does not have dual-channel DDR; it does not take much time to get used to it :-( > PS.

And since it's new, no re-licensing issues. Hardware costs nothing these days: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=73321&item=571185 5935&rd=1 Maybe that's what I'll ask Santa this year: a BFR^H^H^H GSR to replace my home router. <shameless plug> Looking for someone to provide an OC-12 to my home for $100/mo so I can test the router mentioned above. Oh, I also need this, don't I? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=162&item=51126654 63&rd=1 </shameless plug> Michel.
