I have read on the RS/6000 website that a replacement for the F50 will
be out in the first half of 2000, does anyone know anything about this
new system?

'street rumors', so take this with a grain of salt....

It should be RS-64 CPU based, will run AIX 4.3.3 and higher.  Still
limited to 3 Gb main memory.  Only supports 1 internal '6 pack' for
drives plus the removeable media bays.  Needs a power supply upgrade for
more than 2 CPUs.

I would like to replace my 9 gig drives with 36 gig drives, IBM wants
$$$ for #3128 drives. Does anyone know of any compatable drives?
