HDD + FD info

Just a quick little question...

I'm doing some research into building a series of smaller caches (for
schools mainly), and the idea is too keep costs down as much as possible.
My question:

Does anyone have any expierience using UDMA hard drive in a Squid box? I
really, really don't want to use IDE (slow, fail too much, you know), but
SCSI would result in a significantly higher cost for the schools. UDMA
might be a good balence. Any expierience?

And while I'm at this question-asking thing, can anyone give me a rough
idea of a ratio between FD's to connectio/hour loading? Basically I'm kind
of curious how many FD's I'll need to compile into my head-end Linux box
to support all the child caches that will be talking to it. Some numbers
of how many connections/hour your machine handles and how many FD's you
have compiled in and how many you've actually seen in use would be much
