those adapters were discussed a few years ago and I didn't pick up on it (I believe it was concerning the Tadpole laptops).  The biggest SCSI laptop drive I've been able to get my hands on is 1.2 gig.  At least I can put on more than the basic OS.   I'll have to look for one of those adapter boards.  Another project. :)
