Suggestions for increasing my storage space, please...

Post by Patrick J. Cros » Fri, 01 Sep 1995 04:00:00



Hi.  I have a P60 Linux box and my IDE hard drive (~300 megs on the linux
partition) is running out of space fast.  I see three options:

        1) Buy another IDE hard drive
        2) Buy a SCSI controller and a SCSI hard drive
        3) Buy a SCSI controller and a SCSI zip drive

Money is a big part of the equation in that I have very little of it.
Could anyone give me any suggestions on what I should do?

Thanks,

Pat

Well, if you're strapped for cash, you could do what I did: I spent the
$129.00 for a future domain 1680 scsi card - isa 16bit - and then went
over to misc.forsale.computers.workstation to find an inexpensive used
scsi hd. You can find all sizes there for good prices. I got two for a
total of $75.00 - a 170 conner and a 100 dec. (I'm not sure about the
exact price for the fd, but it was around the above price.) Good luck.
