Every now and then i've run across some really loud hard drives. Drives have
gotten a bit quieter in the years since the SPARC-20 was made.
If you can clearly hear the drive over the fan, try a different
drive. Higher RPM drives (7200 was a pretty big deal back in 1995) are
sometimes louder than others. You can get used 9 GB or even 18 GB SCA
drives for very little money now -- less than $10 if you search. You may
just want to replace it.
