Default RAID, SCSI, PM2044UW, Make sense to anobody?

I recently recieved the opurtunity to take any pieces I wanted from an old 90's server before it was trashed. I took the external Hard Drive Enclosure (houses a bunch, not sure how many) and the corresponding PCI card, and one of the internal drives that hooked into the pci cards inside slot thing. I know nothing of this sort of thing, just thought it would be nice to have some extra storage for my backed up dvds. (they eat through an 80 gb hd fast ) So, can anybody shed light on the subject for me and kinda give me a hint of what im dealing with. I know that the drives are at least 18 gb each and there are at least 4 (probibly more). I checked google and this card was being sold for $250-$500 depending on where you looked. If nobody can help, and i cant get it to work, i think i will ebay the whole lot and use the cash for more ram and another monitor. I will post pictures of the enclosure, the card and the serial #'s when I arrive home from the office.

you can sell that whole SCSI enclosure with the multiple SCSI drives in a raid for some really good money. If they are in good working condition, and the case is in good condition working/cosmetically.....

Post it on ebay. Start it off at a dollar(it creates competition between bidders) A 5 day listing.

maybe the drives are wiped already, and there is no OS to boot up.

It is good that the SCSI BIOS came up too.............


EDIT: I just realized that it probably would not have an OS on it since it was an external enclosure. There might still be data on the drives. But no OS.
