If possible, I'd like the flash to be externally accessible to make
upgrading or moving the flash a little simpler. Does anyone know of a
PCI-slot flash carrier that can present itself as a bootable IDE drive
with an external slot? I've found some PCI-PCMCIA cards, but they all
talk about Windows compatibility, and appear to be aimed at digital
camera users more than anything...
Answering my own question, mainly so it goes into the archive - these
are what I was looking for:
IDE-connected but with optional external slot through a PCI backplane.
Not hot-swap, but nice & cheap.
