I believe the CDROM could be absconded with. I'd have to check. Heat
shouldn't be too much of a problem... as I recall that system has one of
those horizontal "squirrelcage" type blowers in it and it moves some serious
The floppy drive in that case is a slim-line unit, can't put in a regular
size one.

More thoughts makes me think the classiccmp server has two drives in it. One
for OS & addon software, and the other (160gb) for hosting the classic
computer related websites and ftp sites. I would bet there's not room for a
third. Hummm....

Ok just checked remotely... there is a 20gb drive for OS & apps & misc
stuff, then a 160gb drive for websites & ftp sites (and mailing list files).
The OS disk is roughly half used, and the data disk is roughly 35% used. I
have a ton of HP stuff to put on it though and some other stuff I won't
mention publicly (but it's classic computer related), so fairly soon we'll
be using about 1/2 the 160gb drive.
