I'm actually running my family web server off an old 5500. I was able to install a 30 GB HD on the system and it works fine. I tried a slightly different 40 GB Hard Drive, but the system refused to recognize it.

I would recommend Partitioning and Formatting any HD with an OS X box and Disk Utility and make sure to use the OS 9 drivers option. The old OS 9 "Disk Setup" utility doesn't usually like anything but Apple branded HDs and won't touch them.
