I think that's the plan.  It would be nice to have a PDP-10 the size of
a 5.25" hard drive (or smaller) that had network connectivity and enough
power to handle a few users.

Chances are you'd have to use an IDE drive, though, since I think that's
the storage medium that is being targeted (emulating a MASSBUS device).
You can then use a CF drive and have a fast, quiet PDP-10.
