Hard Drives for Outbound Model 125 Laptop on Ebay

The Outbound Laptop Model 125 only uses four types of hard drive as far as I know, 20, 40, 60 and 80 MB 2.5" IDE drives. I know that the Conner CP20xx variety work in the Outbound. Although now that I'm about to write it, I suddenly have doubts about the CP2084. I think I only ever owned a CP2064 before but always yearned for the larger (80 MB) 2084.

Anyway....http://cgi.ebay.com/CP2084-80Mb-2-75-LP-IDE-Conner-Laptop-Hard-Drive_W0QQitemZ320082888736QQihZ011QQcategoryZ64480QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItem
IIRC, Outbound Model 125 compatible hard drives for about $25 by the time one pays shipping.

We really need some 68K machine code hacker to hack in compatibility with larger drives.

Performing some thread

Performing some thread necromancy here... So what is the scoup on Conner drives in the 125? My PrairieTek died so I need to replace the drive. And I have no floppy drive either. One battle at a time I guess. The PT drives are impossible to find unless I buy another very collectable PC laptop of similar vintage that "usually" has a PT drice. Conner drives are more avilable, but the pin configuraiton/size/connector is differnet from what I have found. So I need some options/ideas including the possibility of getting a Conner to work somehow with, I asusume, some sortta adapter.
