An SE/30 Thought Experiment

Daydreaming today about building THE ULTIMATE SE/30 got me wondering: is there any combination of upgrades and add-ons for the SE/30 which would result in having a CPU upgrade + internal greyscale + internal Ethernet? I feel like many upgraded SE/30's have one or (sometimes) two of those, but is having all three at once (without 'cheating' with something like a SCSI-to-Ethernet box) even possible?

Hmmm...

I do have an SE/30 in exactly that configuration.

Internal MacCon Ethernet, Xceed grayscale and Micromac Carrera 040.

All my other SE/30s have internal ethernet cards together with an accelerator and a video card as well.

You can stack the SE/30 DiiMO with a MacCon and a IIsi Pivot card for example.

Another one has the socketed Daystar PowerCache and a MacCon with right angle PDS passthrough mod and a video card sitting on top of that.

! is that running Mac OS 8? How'd you get that working? (A ROM swap maybe?)
