8' drive on PC troubleshooting

All the discussion on stacking two PC supplies and cutting
grounds to try and keep them isolated seems like asking
for trouble....

I've had good results using a PC-AT supply, and a little
homebuilt linear (and nicely transformer isolated) 12v
supply stacked on it's output to power an 8" drive. (The
12v supply is actually built on the outside of the cover
of the AT supply).
