Speaking of drive upgrade, my 5 year old 40 meg just died at work and
I put a Seagate Swift (ST1100) in. (used to be CDC swift)

3.5 inch 1/2 hight with 9 heads 1072 cylinders 
15ms ave seek and 150,000 hrs MTBF, 
this is a sweet drive for this machine!

Is this drive still made by the same CDC plant only now with a new lable?
(mine had the CDC part number on it.)

Now that I'm getting spoiled at work does anyone happen to know what 
the best publicly available price for this drive is? 

Anyone ever try mounting two 3.5" hard drives and a 3.5 inch floppy inside the
7300? (160 meg without and expansion box or the bump top!)
