Waldi said yesterday that he has some SCSI(68pol)<->PATA adaptors he doesn't need anymore. I asked him to send them to me. When they arrive I could send one to you... 

Otherwise we have some donors available with larger SCA disks. I just received a rather noisy 18 GB and a rather silent 73 GB SCA disk. The 18 GB disk is still available, while I keep the 73 GB disk for Spice. 
So, if there's need we can ask for another 73 GB SCA disk or so...

Another point I saw when I tried to built a 3.2 kernel was, that the option "Optimize for size" was not activated, resulting in large kernel that leads to problems when loading the kernel with amiboot, needing to reduce available memory by 8 MB. I don't know how big the performance penalty is by optimizing the kernel for size, but reducing the memory by 8 MB is no good idea either, I think...
