I get dozens of cheap old PCs, mostly that I scrap, but I few that I like
to play with. They are often quite functional in original configuration,
and my investment in them is maybe $5. OTOH an Adaptec 2940 card is worth
$35, and so far, since my bid of $13.29 didn't win, that makes the total
cost of putting a 2.88 drive in an old PC kind of dumb.

Oddly enough all the PS/2 I have include excellent SCSI controllers of all
types, and use the 2.88 floppies I can get at no cost at all (brand new
ones on ebay are $8).
