External CD-ROM Needed

Hello everyone.

My school has an old PS/2 Model 70 (386-16, 4mb RAM). They want to install
some software on it which is on CD-ROM. Being a PS/2, there is no room for
an internal CD-ROM, so I told them I'd look into get an old external for

What I'm looking for is either a parallel interface drive, or a drive with
an MCA controller card (there's one free slot). Being that the computer is
a 386-16, speed is not of importance, and even a single-speed would be
sufficient. A parallel interface one would probably be best, since they
could use it on a few of their other non-PS/2 systems (286's, 386's) that
they don't want to spend money to put an internal drive in.

I'm not looking for anything very expensive, since I'll be paying for it,
then donating it to the school.

ThanX in AdvancE,
                 -Jason Willgruber

PS>> Not having to do with the school, but does anyone know where I would be
able to find a hinge for the display of a PS/2 luggable without going
directly through IBM?
