A friend of mine went hard drive shopping one day.  We looked at brand 
new 2Gb drives - about $300 each.  That was a little too big and a 
little too much money.  So we went to a couple of second hand shops.  
Some didn't have any hard drives that they were willing to sell 
separately from the PC.  One wanted to sell a 150Mb drive for almost 

So eventually my friend buckled and bought the 2Gb drive.

It may be time to sever the emotional ties with those Slot 1 
motherboards.  I know it's hard.  I've got a 386DX/40 motherboard 
sitting next to me which will, one day, have 32 pin SIMMs to populate it
