    Find a IDE controller that works. I am suffering right now, as ... the one that I have is, well ... ****ty. It just wont work. I have pretty much given up. I am willing to spend the $10 to just a working one off ebay. It would suit my needs better anyways since there is no way to take off the bracket so I can use PCI slot also.

    ****If anyone has a IDE controller laying around and is willing to give it up ... cheaply please drop me a email. I have a crapload to trade for, a few laptop hds, nics, sound cards, etc...

      Got any other hacked i-appliances? I've also got the webplayer, a GCT and an ePods /me proud ...

      PII 266, 512 MB RAM, 10 Gig, 36x CD-ROM, 16x DVD, DeLorme GPS, 5.6" LCD Screen, Dschmidt power controller, Keypower ATX DC-DC Supply, PowerAmp Macro controller, Dauphin mini-Kbd.
      Sony Head Unit, Sony Unilink input selector, rear deck Kenwood 6x9's, stock door spkrs... All in my '96 Civic, of course :}

        Yea, I am a fan of linux-hacker :-) though it is has been slow these days. I got in on the webplayer, and websurfer hack, but missed out on the i-opener. That seemed to be the most popular... but alas I could not find one cheaply. I am going to try a promise controller, that someone is sending me. It is ISA, I will just take the bracket off and use a PCI network card. I have a USB card but want to conserve cpu cycles. I want to try using giant disc (linux, w/ palm as a control)

          If you'd like to get in on the I-Opener hack, I have a pre-hacked I-Opener for sale (or trade)

          Look in the For Sale/Trade section on this board if you're interested.

          An Epod would be cool but they're not exactly cheap compared to the websurfer or the I-Opener.

              I'm trying to get enough money to get an Opus or ZootJeff Power supply, or a 5-7" tft monitor, which is what i was asking for in trade. I'll try and take some pictures tonight and post em.
