Hmmm, Probably could stick it into my Multia, which could run NT from a SCSI
drive, stick stuff on that way. Hey, if it's a standard 2.5" IDE (a.k.a.
laptop) drive, what's stopping us from sticking in something bigger
capacity? I can't remember what the HDD size limit is in DOS 5.0...

Yep. The floppy plugs into the funny looking parallel port in the back of
the Handbook, and gives you a regular parallel port, and a second serial
port. I also have the battery pack that holds 6 AA batteries to power it. My
two NiCd battery packs for it are dead though... Can't hold a charge really
anymore. One shows a red light, instead of the amber "charging" or green
"charged" light.
