You don't need a hard drive. Use some of the money you saved by not
buying C***o to buy lots of DRAM. Boot from floppy.

Or even buy a flash-based hard drive emulator. Or combine the two

I've been thinking about this. A while ago I saw a product that emulated
dual 1.4MB floppies in flash on an ISA card. This seemed like a good way
to start. Has anyone actually tried this? What flash product did you use?
