    Lovely build mate, thanks for sharing. If you can find one get a scsi kit for the csmk2, you should get 10mb/sec synchronous with less CPU overhead than the fast ATA

    Scsi kit for the MK 2 is excellent, I used to run one with a scsi to ide adapter to IDE hdd. They're not at all fussy. Great bit of kit. I used to run an IDE CD off the onboard IDE on chan1 and CF to IDE mounted to the back as chan0
    It was great because with no CF inserted it would boot from SCSI and with CF inserted it would boot from IDE but still mount scsi
