    Assuming your beige computer has new enough ROMs that properly support slave drives, your best bet is to get an IDE drive and use that. You shouldn't need an IDE controller card unless your beige...

    Does anyone know if I can use a high density (64x4) PC133 512 MB SDRAM in an eMac 800? Or do I have to use the more expensive, lower density (32x8) chips?
