Voodoo? Come on. It works great! I had a high-speed SCSI boot drive
croak, and for emergency repair I just plopped in a EIDE drive I
picked up at the Best Buy for a couple hundred bucks. The SCSI drive
has been replaced under warrantee, and will be going back into service
whenever I get the chance. I'm in no hurry since it works great the
way it is. The data on this machine is on a pair of spliced
high-speed SCSI drives.
No voodoo, just not the ideal configuration for a new machine. This
is on a BSD/OS 4.0.1 system, which is definitely a "real" OS.
