I don't think this would prove useful. This is just 72 pins
Fastpage-RAM; in some 2nd hand PC-stores you can easily find this. And
cheaper than me sending this to someone else by snail mail ;-)

Then I'd still need a harddisk (250 MB is hardly enough), a better
processor (an LC040 can run Linux, but only partially), and a Mac
ADB-keyboard plus monitor (I'd at least like to be able to use a console,
but no idea where to find these things)

Let's stick to the C650 ;-)

Hmmm... or just use another network filesystem. There's something called
"CODA", but I've not seen it yet. And how about SMB?

No need to stick to the outdated security strainer that NFS is...
