Specs are wrong, because they were written before larger disks were available. 2x18 works fine, and I think you will find people on this list who use larger. No, I don't use raid, but again, you will find people who do. Except for the M-for-G slip on memory, what I wrote is correct. (Specs don't allow for CDRW instead of CD, but the hardware doesn't care as long as it's SCSI, and Linux supports it.)
