Hello All,

I am a new subscriber to this list.
I would like to know if any other users have made hardware mods to the MP2K?
I have had my MP2K since 1997 and, although it is a superb machine, I have
always thought that it could be better.

Things I am interested in doing:

Swapping the green backlight for a cool white one.

Adding a mini-din socket to use instead of the clumsy dongle.

Add extensions to the OS.

Add 16/32/64Mb... internal mem.

Replace NewtOS with Linux kernel.

Interface to external HD or CDROM.

Interface to SoundBlaster type chipset.

While some of these things are complex undertakings, none of them are
impossible. I know that with enough information I can get them done.

If you can share your info/thoughts/wishes etc. I would be most grateful.
