Also, I have heard that Seagate hard drives run hot -- any knowledge of that?
I don't know, not that I ever noticed ... I do know I almost always use Seagate drives (or Quantum) and never had a problem with them.
In any case, AFAIK temperature doesn't really matter for hard drive performance/lifespan.
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
