Fibre channel is out. Too pricey for me. I'll try the Gigabit ethernet. I think it will work ok. I visited the Final Cut Pro Tour in Manhattan tonight and the people I talked to told me that what I was building would work fine. No one recommended anything better. Of course I skipped the "Promise" guys because those drive arrays are crazy expensive.

Apple offered attendees 20% off all training courses, but their course are very expensive. I'll stick to the books as I think the software is very easy to use, from what I've seen and what I've learned talking to editors tonight.
