Well... I have an old AT tower that I'd like to put my CoCo into. I also
have a MPI that needs to go in also since I have a HD and a SyQuest
removable as well as the usual floppies. I'd like to be able to access the
MPI slot from outside the tower, but that may be more trouble than it's
worth. Now I already have a CoCo3 setup to use a PC power supply (it's
complete with 6309, Protector and Nitros and the improved RSDOS that Cloud
9 is selling). So getting it into that case would be sooo fine. Right now
I'm using an Amiga 2000 power supply to power the hd and Syquest. So it
goes without saying that this cludge requires a lot of desk realestate.
