kay...yep, i havn't been able to find a relpacement harddrive for my 760E ibm laptop, but, as it has been a good "freind" to me, and i saw the post about putting an adapter for IDE to CF, and was wondering if i could do that to my ibm, of course, i'd bring it to a freind of mine to get sater it, but that wouldn't be a problem. yeah, would that work, it sounds sufficient to me, i could get the 20 dollar adapter, and a really big CF card *do they make them over 1 gb?* i was hoping to get a 2gb cf card, but do they make them.??? yeah, that's all i need to know, that and some documentation so i can fix the thingy.. yeah, and i'm lookin for a site to where i can get a um.....68 pin? scuzzi hdd and put it in my dock, as that would suffice for the "docked" config, but i want to fix it up because the hdd i have in there is corrupted, and i can only use about 1/2 of it, and it's supremely annoying, because i keep getting a regristry checker popup when i start up the laptop. yepp, any ideas???
