I'd like to hear how that goes. My USB 2 card also has an internal port, kind of like the firewire on the motherboard. With a similar USB cable like the firewire one you're talking about, I could add a firewire and USB up front. The Zip bay is a great idea, because I don't think anyone in their right mind would use Zip discs anymore when you can buy a 2 gig flash drive for $19. If you go through with the mod, are you going to take pics and describe what you did to make it easier for me to learn from your mistakes? wink
I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate.  And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it.
