It IS an ISA slot but you also need a Zorro bridgeboard to activate the
pins, on a stock motherboard there's only power and ground lines available
to let you run passive things like fans.....I've never seen an ISA
bridgeboard :) As for the drivers I guess google is your friend.

Don't the later amiga clones use compact flash etc as storage? Also, the
A1200 has a PCMCIA slot that likes 16 bit cards....I was told here last week
that certain PCMCIA network cards will work so at least there's some hope.

Get yourself a copy of Cloanto's Amiga Explorer. It's about $20, runs over a
standard serial cable and puts your Amiga into the winduhs Explorer window
so you can have instant access to drives and folders etc. I use it to
transfer stuff all the time.
