The floppy on the SOLO machine died. So I just got the LS120 drive instead. Quite a bargain, i must say. 120 Mb will be more than enough to boot Linux, X and Java applications for the GPS system.

Still thinking about the HDD, since there is no external connection for the drives, so I can't use the external HDD box for MP3 storage. BUT, I'm gonna purchase the 10GB internal HDD from Gateway distributor to store all the stuff.

Right now, I am looking at the NOKIA PC-Card GSM modem (you just stick a SIM card in it, and put the modem in the PC-Card slot). Don't think that Linux supports it, but since I have all the specs on the modem, it shouldn't be a problem to write a device driver or somethin'.

Fun never seems to stop. :o)
