But SCSI drives usually last longer, and you can actually have multiple
drives on a controller.
I have one i386 box with an IDE drive and a CD/RW. So, even though there
are 4 IDE connectors, I have effectively used up all the IDE connections.

Are there any USB 1/2 hard drives that work with NetBSD?
