Hmm, I just happen to have that drive, or one very similar to it...
1.something gig 5.25" full-height Maxtor SCSI drive. It has bad sectors
and I don't use it anymore... hmm :)

Of course, if I ever accidentally stick it to the fridge without a phone
book in between, I'll probably never get it back off again :)
