Any suggestions on getting three hard drives in a Beige MT? I currently have a floppy, CD-ROM, ZIP, and two drives in my MT. I am going to get rid of one HD, but I will be installing an IDE RAID with two drives. I want to keep the third drive for backup purposes. I am also going to add a CD-RW, so that is going to take up a spot.

I would like to keep the CD-ROM, but I can live without the ZIP, but this still leaves me one short. Is there a way to fit two drives in one bay?

Thanks in advance.

I got a three drive rack/mount from the local PC shop for a 1.00 that was obviously pulled out of some PC box...then I removed the internal speaker and put the rack on the "deck". Very tight with all of the ribbons and power cables (you might need a couple of "Y"s) but it works well if you get a PCI based RAID or IDE card if you do some careful ribbon routing. Stuck a PC fan in the brown plastic thing so that it blows air on the rack to keep the drives and other components cooler.
