Yes.  External 5.25" drives, both 360K and 1.2M were available for the
PS/2 line.   It was just a matter of power and signal cabling to put
together your own.
There was a bracket with a DC-37.  That could be used for PC external
drive, if that was what you had on hand.  Or wanted to connect an 8"


The only ones I remember were third-party.  SYSGEN comes immediately
to mind.
