hi ya joel...

we're a few weeks away from making a custom 1U chassis for 
P4, amd and supermicro(dual-nic) motherboards...

if you need a "bunch"...it'd make sense to move this along
faster.... if one-z-two-z testing/orders than it'd be a while stilll..

cooling is the issue too... ( haven't done final test on cooling )
	- we've found, on P3s, smaller heatsinks runs better than "huge"
	heatsinks... just need to keep the small heatsink cool...

our 1U chassis hold 1 drive, 2, 4, 6, 8 drives...
( please email offline if interested )

c ya
