Seagate ST3120814A.  And the BIOS is 08/21/97-580VPX-VIA83669-2A5LD000C-00,
which is Award BIOS v4.51PG for FYI (Full Yes Industries, a defunct Taiwanese
company), manufacturer of the VT 580VX MMX motherboard, which uses the VIA
VPX chipset, VIA 82C585.

I'm definitely considering that PCI controller card someone posted about.
It's cheap enough to give it a shot :)
