Hi All,

        Does the Mega STE work with Dave Smalls 68030 SST Board ???

        If so, When using the 68000 for compatibility mode, can you still
        switch between 8 and 16MHz operation ????

Nope.

The Mega STE has a 68000 CPU in a PLCC socket - while the 68030 SST is
designed to replace a 68000 CPU in DIL style. Also, the form factor in
the Mega STE is very different from the Mega ST - so the SST would simply
not fit into the case.

A SST for the Mega STE may come out, according to Dave Small. But then
again, this is "may" as in "may be, may be not"...

1. 68030 SST to STE, can it be done?

Is it possible to install the 68030 SST to STE? I know that there are
adapters that make this physically possible, but does it work?
Where can I get such an adapter? (PLCC to DIL)

Please followup this article, because I may not be the only one needing
this article.
