Netfinity 5000 - Hard Drive Upgrade

Netfinity 5000 - Hard Drive Upgrade

I have a couple of Netfinity 5000 Type 8659-31Y PII Servers that continue to serve me well, but I need more disk capacity.

Right now I am running 5 x 18g drives in a RAID 5 configuration. (Drive P/n 25L1952)

I am pretty sure that I came across some commentary before that said you can upgrade these to 36gig drives.

Does anyone know what make/model/pn of a drive I might be able to use to move to 36gig drives???

I would greatly appreciate any help, as I HATE to get rid of these great servers just because of a drive capacity issue.
