There was a Seagate 1.2GB disk native to the Voyager. The last two of  
those machines I had were big diskers.

The IDE > SCSI adapters for laptop drives also work in the Voyager.

I'm fairly certain 2.6 was the last to 'fully' support the V'ger. (2.) 
7 was ass.

I have a 2.51 and new 2.6 media set here somewhere.
