Adam is right, you can get pretty much any SCSI drive as long as it's
the correct connector (ie: SCA vs 68-pin).  I can order in many
different brands/models if you ever want some pricing.

I actually just bought another 15krpm 68-pin for my main box and was
surprised how cheap SCSI has become (compared to 5 years ago).

I've been quite happy with Fujitsu SCSI drives over the last 10 years,
even though I've learned to loathe their IDE stuff.  They usually are
the cheapest, too.
