8-) Like SS5's and 10's as well. I don't have anything like 263 SS20's
though - only about four (one in production use as a NetBSD-based ftp
server, others for whatever), but I do have one made into the later revision
of the case which allowed the use of a standard half-height CD-ROM drive
instead of the low-profile Toshiba XM-4101 which is 2x speed, very expensive
to buy, and extremely expensive to buy mounting hardware for (new anyway).
