Maybe, but that space might be to big... the onboard connectors are only for
2.5" disks. And it is nice to have the floppy as a dropback. A tower case
might be good, though... I should try to boot from floppies, maybe I find
out how to fix the can-not-boot-from-floppies atari bug. After all, once
linux is running, I do not care about TOS anymore.

Some older ones from last year, the one from today shows how the box looks
right now, with a long IDE cable, so I can mount the disk, with the CTEX, so
there is supposed to be more room to add the EtherNAT and also close the
case again.

But its a lot of reading, I haven't finished the exim4 book yet...

I don't print that much, but I don't always want to go to the university to
print something. I just want a printer that works, colour would be nice and
I don't think it is that expensive, except for the toner, but maybe that is
reasonable, too.
