I have a beige G3 upgraded with a G4 card. It has a 30 gig drive/cdr slave. A cd-rom / zip drive slave. Can I replace the floppy drive with a new Maxtor 30 gig ATA 100 drive?

thanks
Mike

Ummm - Somehow I don't think so.. It sounds to me like you've used up both your IDE channels (i.e. 2 channels with 2 devices / channel).

Don't think that the floppy is swappable w/ a hard drive ... you might be better off with an ACard IDE controller PCI card (if you have a spare PCI slot)
