This L40SX is ISA, no way to have ATA notebook HD mixed in if that
thing is MCA. Resources on 'net is certain of that that I know is

Got L40SX? Look at HD, it is stock ATA 2.5" HD.

I was that close in summer of '93 because I didn't know if that L40SX
did have standard ATA 2.5" hd but also didn't know it does use
somewhat standard 72pin simms. Sigh... ended up w/ LTE 386s/20, it
served me ok for first 3 years then battery died, and other things
started to wear out and break up. Typical of compaq's.

Years later, on 'net I found out what L40SX's stuff were.
