:I work since 1991 with computer hardware and know exact

:I am wery glad that now mostly no need in SCSI drives at all.
:Just use good IDE drives, may be second root and regular

This is totatlly contrary to my experience. Heck, I've got a fair
number of SCSI disks that predate 1991, happily spinning away.
SCSI just works, on everything I've ever used it. I've had a
occaisonal problems with things like termination. High quality
cables and enclosures solve this. I wouldn't let an IDE disk get within
thinking distance of machine whose reliability I cared about.
