Well, I think the only card that was in it was the video card (HD and floppy
controllers had been removed). The first slot (closest to the side of the
case) on the XT and PC motherboards do match up. I think for the cassette
port, he just drilled a hole in the case, or cut something. I'm not too
sure how he did it, because it's been 5 years since I've seen it.
