IBM PS/2 Model P70 (luggable)

Hello folks,

Am looking for a replacement floppy drive unit for my luggable.  Currently
has OS/2 installed on a 60MB ESDI drive.

I want to wipe the drive and install an alternate OS but need a good working
floppy.  Does anyone out there have a replacement to offer?  We live in MN.

Also, if someone can help with where-to-find a SCSI adapter so that we can
upgrade to internal SCSI drive, that information would be greatly
appreciated.

Thanks!

Martin Adams on ebay has 8555 floppies which are an exact fit. You can 
use 2.88MB floppy drives, but be careful which model. The floppy cable 
isn't all that long and the floppy connector on the drive should be on 
the side towards the case.

I recommend a Future Domain MCS-700 or the IBM SCSI-2 controller (FD 
MCS-700 OEM'd for IBM)

If you want to add a power connector to the IBM version, look for a 
Molex 53109-0410, 5.08mm (.200") pitch disk drive power connection 
system, right angle header with strap, standard polarization.

   To make a custom power cable from the drive to the FD, same system, 
15-24-2001, Female IDT connector, 20AWG stranded

Good home wanted for 2 x IBM PS/2 Model 95
I have a couple of Model 95 server that I want to find a new home for. They haven't been used in a while but had no problems when used. One has a RAID controller, there is a genuine SoundBlaster MCA card, an internal CD drive and an external CD drive plus SCSI drives, memory and LAN cards. I'm not looking for the prices seen on e-bay but a contribution would be nice. I am based in SE England and ideally looking for someone to collect or I could deliver a reasonable distance. I can give a proper breakdown if there is interest.
