That worked except that it didn't see the hard disk. Ok, open the case, pull 
out the sled and see a disk that is crushed. Yes, crushed. Well, actuall more 
like someone took a ball-peen hammer to it. So I take it off, put on a seagate 
2 gb I've got pop it in. Machine won't start. Take out sled. Machine starts. 
Reinstall sled. No start. Look carefully at sled and notice that the connecter 
from the sled to the system is hosed by whatever did in the disk...

So, how much do Indigo 2 sleds go for? Or can the cable and connector be bought
