I have no willpower... I need drivers, too.

        I thought for sure I'd left my computer collecting days far behind when my interest in amateur radio re-flared a few years back. Then I came across one heck of a piece of history that I could not resist.

        Specifically: An original Compaq 'Luggable.' Green-screen, 8-bit motherboard, two full-height 360K FDD's, the works. Found at a local thrift store, in pretty good shape (if a bit dirty) and still functional, for the stunning price of $18 with tax.

        <sigh> I couldn't say no. The sight of the thing sitting on the floor, gathering dust and negligent kicks from other customers, was too much. God only knows what I'm going to do with it... Although I do have a nice IBM 8-bit MFM drive controller I'm going to stick in there, along with a hard drive.

        BTW, the thing had a fully-loaded AST SixPack Plus board in it. If this requires any drivers to work, I would appreciate knowing about it (and knowing where to find said drivers).

        Thanks much.
