They are EXPENSIVE... I can't believe that I paid 100EUR per piece. But
nowadays you want SATA-IDE adapters, they run at about the same price, I
think they were from acard. Sorry, I don't have my bookmarks here, I just
arrived in Thun. And suddenly things don't seem so expensive anymore ;-)
Other IDE options are the CF-IDE (or SD-IDE) converters, remember, the one I
use to resurrect my Falcon? For booting that should work, but of cource not
for chroot storage.

I have a large collection of 36GB SCA [1] hard disks, some of them are
even 72GB. Those were once part of a large Alpha server and could
probably be hooked up to the Amigas with an adapter much cheaper.
