1. SATA hotswap chassis with pullout trays(cheapest ones are on eBay).
2. 3ware hardware RAID controller card.

After deciding a drive is not recoverable, and the array is running
degraded, pull out the old drive and put in the new one. Then do a rescan
and then a rebuild.

The 3ware controller is intelligent, so I have no idea how you would do it
if you were not doing an array or using a smart controller.
