I installed a scratch 20 Gb cheap-o into a removeable tray, and have the
tray on a couple of computers. Makes a wonderful floppy. Just make sure
it is formatted as an extended/logical partition, primaries tend to
confuse some more stupid o/s's when the partitions get added and
removed. I highly recommend a removeable tray scratch IDE drive.
