Best Regards, Dirk ----- Original Message ----- From: "STEVE GRAY" <email@example.com> To: <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sent: Saturday, January 09, 2010 10:36 AM Subject: Re: 8250LP, 3040, 4040 drives, PET motherboards (was: Transfer 8050 disks) Anders, I just picked up some SFD-1001 boards with 8250MINI daughterboards but no mechs, so I'd be interested in a few. In case you don't know the 8250mini board converts the SFD board into a dual drive unit equivilent to the 8250.
