just wondering if this thing takes a normal hard drive..
i dont think they used ide harddrives in 1988?
i remember the drives were huge back then..
but i cant remember if they were the same 40pin IDE interface?

i found these pages:
http://www.ccadams.org/se/index.html

but it still isnt clear if it takes a normal harddrive

Drives that spin at 4,500 revs per minute should be OK, and experience suggests that 5,400 rpm drives up to 540MB capacity will be too

ok it seems it takes a realy low capacity scsi drive?
