Disk drive and Ultra 10

I need more space on my Ultra 10, and was thinking of a pair of 60 or 80 GB 7200 rpm ATA/100 drives mirrored with DiskSuite. Will afterarket IDE drives work in the Sun box? Are there any issues?

As far as SUN is concerned, yes. I added the link since it's great for knowing what you can put in a SUN system and what you can't. I believe the hardware won't recognize anything bigger.

Up to two 4.3 GB (4500 rpm) or 9.1/20.4 GB (7200 rpm), 3.5-in. Enhanced IDE HDD
