I'm wondering about adding a 3rd SATA hard drive to a Dell Precision 
670n Linux workstation... I see that there are only 2 SATA power cable 
sockets on the motherboard, so I'm wondering if this is even possible 
(can a splitter/adaptor be applied to one of the power cables, like w/ 
the power cable to older IDE drives, or is this a bad idea?) ?  

Thanks for any advice,

PS. I realize this may be more of a hw rather than linux question, so 
please feel free to direct me to a more appropriate mailing list (or any 
other online info!) if this is too far off-topic...
