It's a 1 gig SCSI IBM Raid.

And, to answer Miles's question, it's a 486 66 Mhz (downgraded from 120 Mhz
by the idiot who broke the motherboard when installing the above hard
disk), running OS/2 Warp. 

I think the problem was a couple of very short power outs, which corrupted
the FAT on one of the FAT partitions. I think Norton has fixed it -- it's
been running since then. 

It wouldn't so much be the hardware itself, as the reinstallation of the software.
