I appreciate your thoughts on the matter. This thread wasn't all that old really. I've been playing with 7.5.5 because it was available to install from my floppy emu. Right now I'm running off a 40mb 5.25" drive in the SC20 enclosure, so this thing is seriously speed handicapped by that thing. I've got a 1GB Seagate drive, but haven't been able to get the system to actually SEE it yet. Until I do, I'm happy tinkering around with different versions. I wouldn't mind running 8.0 on this thing in the end. I just upgraded the ram to 128mb, and put the cache card in. Anyone ever swap out the clock crystal and overclock the CPU? I guess that's a question for another thread. hehe
I wish I had more time and a longer attention span, projects I can do on the cheap.
Been toying with this a bit. I think I'll scale it up to 80% of real size so 5.25" removable media drives will fit/ The other option is to go with a more elongated riff on the SC form factor in miniature.
