Just got ahold of a very nice black Takky, and am weighing the option of adding a G3 card and perhaps ethernet to it. But I want to KISS (keep it simple...)
So I have 3 quick ?'s for anyone with personal experience:
(1) Has anyone here successfully run a G3-L2 card in a Takky based on a 5500 or 6500 mobo, WITHOUT a 3.3V regulator or 2nd PSU? (My CC in question has no 2nd PSU and appears not to have a 3.3V regulator, and runs fine with the stock 250MHz 603e and a firewire PCI card.)
(2) Has anyone here ever obtained a G3-L2 card that was low enough to fit under the CC's floppy drive without having to hack up the underside of the floppy's plastic carrier/shelf?
(3) Has anyone on these forums ever managed to find a source for the rare Comm Slot II ethernet card that's only 40mm high (i.e. no higher than the metal shielding around the ethernet port), and which therefore can fit in a Takky CC without relocating the hard drive?
