    TO DO LIST:
    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...

    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.
