    Hi all,

    I am in the process of shortlisting componemnts for a HCPC.

    My innitial aim is to use a small IDE hard drive (the smallest ive found is 80 Gigs for ~£45) to set up the system and to store the software stuff on.

    I am then intending to install additioanl RAId/ATA seraial drives to store the ripped Cd's and other data on. Is this feasible?

    How do I set up the system to ghost the data if I wanted to onto another drive?

    Whats this I have vaguel read about the larger drives being problematic to format, and being unreliable.

    Any help on this issue of hard drives would be most appreciated.

    Also using a wireless network, will i be able to access the drives etc from my current PC across the wireless network?

    How simple is it to set up?

    Adrian
