Yep, that's the site that told me what the 2 cards were so I downloaded
everything in sight. Tonight's task is to see which drive is the boot
drive and have a go at installing OS 3.5 which should be interesting as
I've never installed AmigaOS from CD before. Maybe I'll take some OS3
floppies too just in case.

No worries on that score, the previous owner removed the battery before he
put the machine in storage.

I've sort of half-heartedly been looking for a Squirrel SCSI card for my
A1200 but I only ever see them on epay and they always go for more than
I'm willing to pay. As for network, I've got an old laptop with a 3com
PCMCIA card in....could I use that?

Play and learn and get it on the web if possible, as well as see what that
fat graphics card is capable of.....
