Well, if you're strapped for cash, you could do what I did: I spent the
$129.00 for a future domain 1680 scsi card - isa 16bit - and then went
over to misc.forsale.computers.workstation to find an inexpensive used
scsi hd. You can find all sizes there for good prices. I got two for a
total of $75.00 - a 170 conner and a 100 dec. (I'm not sure about the
exact price for the fd, but it was around the above price.) Good luck.
