I recently thought of an idea, I have several small capacity IDE hard drives sitting in my room, why not use them?
Well, I've thrown around ideas of backup, general storage or otherwise but I want to build a kind of multifunction PC. One that friends, visitors or just about anyone can jump on.
With that, I need suggestions on a motherboard, chaining multiple IDE drives and if my idea is really 'good'. I think i could do some neat stuff with a kick around PC. Since it's not going to be on much at all, the tower size should be minimal with minimum specs.
Any suggestions or directions?
