I think you can.

The dock is just the desktop part of expansion. The NUBUS architechture is link directly to the laptop board meaning that the laptop is a open-ended portable desktop. My brother has stuck 2 video cards in his duo dock at one time. So, go for it!

7" vs 12"

The catch might be if the Duodock can only take 7" cards. the Rocket is a full-length 12" card. I can't remember off the top of my head, you might want to open your Dock and see if there is room (or room can be made with a few mods)

Plenty of room

There is plenty of room for that.

My problem now will be finding the right ram simms to populate it.

Did ya get it working? I have got a Rocket II (with 128MB), but locks up. What Duo do you have? Me? I'm using a 2300 right now.

Really really curious...

IIRC it didn't work . . .

. . . when I tried it in my Dock, but I don't think I tried very hard to get it to work or to figure out what the problem was.

The Rocket takes standard parity or non-parity PC type SIMMs.
