Dean, that seems ideal but there isn't a normal ISA slot on this computer.
IT's a portable/laptop. There is a connector that maps to ISA but I
haven't figured out exectly what it would be called or who makes it. So
finding a mating connector doesn't seem easy. I was trying to avoid
soldering the 14 or so wires needed to use a post code board. But if it
comes to that...
Thanks for the info on that, though!
