Actually I PUT small SCSI drives in old macs, the donor machines are
typically old PS/2 computers. I typically have everything from about 30 mb
up to a couple of GB, and 30 - 40 MB, 80 MB, and 160 MB 3.5" half height
IBM drives are $5, $8, and $12 respectively. Priority Mail for under 2 lbs
adds $3.55.
