Yep, I've got a few of the LMS caddies that fit the RRD40 left. Get me
your mailing address and one will go out ASAP.

Are you sure you really want to use the RRD40? It's slower than a 1X
CD-ROM... If you can at all get a more recent SCSI CD-ROM that you can
set to 512 bytes per sector (lots of such NEC units show up on E-bay
and at surplus dealers like www.hitechcafe.com) and use, do it. Most
third-party Q-bus SCSI controllers will issue SCSI mode selects so that
you can use drives that are set up for 2048 bytes per sector, even.
