Yes, CORE-1 currently, with mixed 2.4 and 2.6 kernels, to test speeds of
both, so far the TCP handling seems more efficient with the 2.6 boxes so i
might upgrade kernels on the rest also.

SCSI is most likely the best way to go, little more expensive but if you
can afford a dual xeon box you can also afford scsi =)
