A close friend has a TI Portable Professional running MS-DOS 2.1.  I
would like to install a hard disk in it for Christmas, but I'm unsure
just how incompatible the TI is from the IBM PCs that I'm used to.

Can I simply get one of the two-for-a-quarter Western Digital 3/4 card
controllers (the kind that most vendors include with their hard disks),
or does the TI require some strange (i.e., expensive) controller?

Thanks for all help, ideas, or suggestions. . .
