There should be no problem with a 2Gb SCSI drive. The only problem
you'll have is stuffing the drive in the UDB. There is an alleged PCI
riser card for the UDBs that allows you to install a 3.5" drive
internally, but are rare and probably not worth your while since they
eliminate your only PCI slot.

I just detached the external SCSI port (inside) and run a 50pin header
out the slot. Grab an old PC P/S and you're set. If you want a better
external solution, then shell the $$$ for an external scsi enclosure.
