What are good rules of "thumb" for
choosing IDE vs SCSI when building
a Linux system?

Both are fast these days...I always
thought that IDE==cheap, but loaded
the CPU, so you didn't want that in
a server or high performance machine
that might be busy with other things
besides waiting for the current disk
transfer...is that fair? just basically

Thanks in advance!
