The Alspa has a parallel port on it that goes to a Corvus drive.  If I 
find my diskettes, or can get a boot disk with bios source, you can use 
that code to run the drive.  I don't know of any real documentation, 
maybe Al K has some that is not online somewhere that describes how the 
actual disk runs over that cable.
