It's a bit different but I opted for the Ultrasatan board from Lotarek. A 
friend gave me "long term loan" of some Atari ST hardware and a TT030. One 
of the computers is a Mega 2 with a bad floppy, no luck in fixing the 
floppy and it has a custom plastic from bezel that looks cool as hell 
(don't just want to drop a jumperable PC drive in it.) So I bought the 
ultrasatan that emulates the ACSI HDD. Mounted it internally near the rear 
expansion cover so I could access the card through the back. Have it 
running Notator and a few other programs. The Amiga was better than the 
ST, but well... those midi ports! Not exactly fatboy slim here just want 
to play with some history.
