I found this totally cool little project:
Replace the internal mechanical HD with compact Flash. Obviously this is
best with only pre OSX because OSX is just too chatty and will likely kill
your compact flash.
All the steps are here in Japanese but you can always use google translate.
There are 5 steps so just modify the article_1.html to article_2.html and
so on, 5 parts in total.
You will need something like this, a Compact Flash CF Card to IDE 44Pin 2mm
Pitch Male 2.5" HDD Adapter Card

see http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&am p;DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=compactflash+2. 5+IDE+HDD&N=-1&isNodeId=1
for more options
OR search for compactflash 2.5 IDE HDD on newegg or amazon what have you…
You will also need one of these Transcend Information 16gb Cf Card 133x,
Type I or something compatbile.
I think this is great for a silent vintage portable or even desktop. I DO
NO recommend this for OSX only system 7, OS 8 or 9.
Anyone have feedback on this? Has anyone already done it?
