Wow....I guess there is no such thing as overkill....I retract the question.
However, I will inquire further about four drives instead of three for the
RAID5 Array.
Thanks to all who responded

Our standard cluster node or file server is a HP LT6000 6 way xeon 700 ,
4gb ram with fibre to a SAN of 6 brocades and 2 HP XP disk arrays of
about 4-5TB usable

Hello
Yesterday's thread on the Dell servers was interesting and insightful.
We are in the process of getting quotes for three more servers.  One to
do File Serving, another to be a DC for a w2k domain, and another to be
our Oracle server.  We were going with Dual Processor 1.6mzh with 2Gig
RAM, 3-36g 15k Hard drives with a RAID-5 controller. Is this overkill?
Thanks Mario=20
