I was wondering if anyone has used one of these SCSI-IDE shim things in a next?  I was thinking of using a SCSI/IDE shim with a compact flash disk..  At the least it'll cut the power consumption, and I figure it ought to be faster since there is no moving parts....  And a 2 gig CF won't be impossible to get a hold of, unlike a reliable 2 gig scsi disk..

Any thoughts?

I thought about that. Another option is the rather rare and hard to get scsi pcmcia drives. i almost bought one off ebay a few weeks ago. should work perfectly fine in nextstep. use a pcmcia to cf adapter and voila :)

like the Clik drives?  I have one of those, it was cool but then disk capacities exploded... I mean what good is 40mb??

40mb would hold some text files... and.. um.. uh.. i guess a tmp dir of sorts..

IMO, you're better off with a reliable 10K RPM SCSI3 drive and an adapter.

It would be cool to see, but I bet the SCSI > IDE would be (dead) dog slow.
