    As far as I've been able to come up with, the most IDE devices I can have is 4. OK, I was fine with that for a while. I only had 1 extra hard drive, so I threw it in the computer, it was done. Well, about 3 months ago, I started talking to friends, picking up old computers that were just going to be trashed, and now, I'm sitting here with 6 extra hard drives and nothing to do. I want to put as many as possible on 1 computer and use it as a file server, but I have no idea how. Any suggestions?
