right. ive got my miggy 1200. ive got os3.0 disks winging there way to me (go eBay) ive got a hard drive cable. Problems gonna be getting the HDD. can wb3.0 run off the floppys? if so, will i have to re set it up every time i want to boot or will it be like my old 1.3 disks?
ive set myself a £30 budget (! i am so poor ;) ) to do the following things to the miggy:
new keyboard (anoyne got an old one they want to sell?)
Possabley some extra memory / an accelerator. any idea where i can pick this stuff up cheap?

What type 3.5 or 2.5 inch?
I have a 2.5>3.5 IDE cable converter & I can prolly bodge a power cable cos I got some spare fdd & hdd connectors. Then u can have a small (121Mb) hdd I have laying about I'll even throw in a modified sheild so the drive fits properly :))
>new keyboard (anoyne got an old one they want to sell?)
PC 5pin or replacement 1200?
I got a couple of spare 1200 keyboards (maybe a couple of keytops missing) ya can have one for the P&P cost or ya can come & get it
