I've heard of, but never personally tried, greyhole
(www.greyhole.net), which takes any number of heterogeneous-sized
drives and presents a single logical storage pool that replicates
files onto a (user-configurable) number of copies onto the actual
drives.  This doesn't sound exactly like what you want, but it may be
a way to use up your stack of old drives (while taking into account
the fact that they're old and none are 100% reliable - hence the
user-configurable number of redundant copies).
