        I thought about doing that but don't have any toasted drives
with that style connector that they could donate. I'll have to keep
looking for one. The other thing is that I'd likely have to make a
special short SCSI cable due to the cramped insides of the P70. It'd
be great having a larger drive than the stock 121meg unit though, not
to mention easier to find replacements for.
