RE: Length of ribbon cable on exp port...

Hi Bryan,

I've seen one aftermarket cable that was 12inches (300mm) long, so if well
constructed, that length may be fine. Having said that, I once tried to
build one only half that length and had intermittent trouble...

This guy's site shows what can be done (and still work!)

	I have finally scored a 128D :D and I am planning to get an IDE64
for it.
I would like to install the IDE64 and a hard drive inside the machine.  

	Does anyone know how long a ribbon cable can be?  Can you use an IDE
cable or is there another one better suited for the job?
