when buying memory or hdd, i check both ebay and amazon for price,
warranty and shipping.

last purchases i made were all from amazon.

1 TB sata hdd, 2 ddr 1x2 GB memory and a power supply for an emachine.

1 TB sata hdd, 2 ddr 1x2 GB memory for tower box.

turned out emachine had more than a power supply, so 2nd hdd and power
supply went into tower box.

tower box is oem mainboard for ide drives, bought an ide2sata adapter for
it. now it has 2 1 TB sata drives, 1 250 GB ide and 1 ide cd/dvd r/w drive,
1 usb cd/dvd r/w usb drive, 1 hd 3.5 floppy, 1 dc2120 tape drive on floppy
controller, 1 dc2120 / travan on scsi controller.

no front cover so all drive will fit and have access.

i tricked it with a 3 position momentary-center-momentary switch for
reset | off | on.

i took a much needed nap while pulling 7 x86_64 iso. it was not until i
started to run checksum to verify that i saw i pulled the 'everything'
iso file. now have the 4.0 GB dvd iso file.

rebooting to install correct iso.

back later. again.


peace out.
