  Yes. I have a PCjr with a parallel extension and several memory
extensions (two I think - it's at home, I'm at work) and I have a secondary
power supply (that hooks up the same as all extentions, off the side).

  You might want to try a web search on PCjr. I've heard of companies that
supply parts, although for DMA, you'll have to have drivers since the BIOS
does not support DMA driven I/O.
