Whatever works for you. Do you need the portability? You may need the bay for
something else. Does it use a wall-wart for power that you'd like to eliminate?
Are the drives on separate cables? This is SCSI, correct?

So would you need more than one externally available MPI slot?
One can widen a 3.5" drive bay by about 1/4 inch to accommodate a CoCo
cartridge. One idea is to use a 5.25" bay adapter (for a 3.5" floppy drive) to
make a cartridge slot.

Draw me a front panel layout of the PC case with your drives in the positions
you'd like them. A basic text redition is fine, or feel free to email an
attachment of whatever you can throw together.

Also, is the monitor cable a custom one-piece cable? No intermediate adapters
or anything?
