Following up from my previous post on the subject, I got an IDE to Compact Flash adapter and an appropriate fixed-disk CF card. This evening I put it all together.

Windows 95 is currently installing, the only snag I’ve really had is as follows: the boot disk (because you have to boot off a floppy to load the CD drivers to install windows) would whine about needing to format the drive, then act like everything was fine until windows couldn’t write to the disk. After scratching my head for a while and poking around via DOS I realized the CF card came formatted (duh) and it certainly wasn’t a valid partition for windows. A little bit of fdisk solved that! Hopefully this works out...
