Which model HP is it? I have an HP-PA 9000/715 that has 5 drives attached, 
ranging from a 1GB Quantum to a 36 gig Seagate, without any problem. I 
don't think you need to make any changes in the PDC, just do "search 
scsi" to scan for SCSI drives to make sure it's picking up the hardware OK 
(ie, right SCSI ID and termination).

If it's one of the older NetServers you should be OK, I think the only 
problem there would be obtaining drive sleds. If I recall correctly (and 
it's been a few years since I touched a NetServer) the drive sled itself 
takes care of termination and SCSI ID - I think there's a label on the 
inside of the tray that tells you how to set it.

Cheers... Dop.
