This is exactly how I've just upgraded my studio machine. I replaced 3 IDE HDDs
with a total of ~300GB of storage with 2 SATA drives - a 500GB 2.5" Seagate
Constellation and an 80GB Intel X25-M drive.
The 500GB drive has 3 bootable partitions so I can muck around with various
Linux distros and versions without messing up my real studio environment, and
a big partition for general storage. Working sessions are in the /tape partiton
on the 80GB drive.
I've had three sessions in the studio since the upgrade and it's been working
flawlessly, even though it's just got a 3GHz Pentium 4 as the CPU.
A side note: since these were overdub sessions, I really didn't want to be around
the corner from where the musicians were set up, since I figured that'd hamper
communications. X11VNC and my laptop to the rescue! I displayed the studio's
desktop over to the wireless laptop, and was able to sit right in the performing
area and control the transport remotely. Folks were very impressed.
