Yes it's in the manual for English users. You lose the SCSI connection for external drives, USB Dragontail etc., but you can add a USB port as described in my Guide.

Hello everyone, hope you can help
Something strange.
I figured out something really weird. I did figure out why I was not able to get the hard drive to work. It's not because I re formatted it, it was because my machine doesn't like to have the dragon tail with USB network card and the hard drive at the same time. When I plug in the Dragon tail and USB card, the hard drive screen goes back to the original state then quits working, until I unplug it, re-boot, then it works again (goes back to how I set it up). I tried having the machine running, then plugging in the dragon tail, it works until I plug in the USB network card and then it freezes again. What am I doing wrong?
Any ideas?
Thanks,
Blane

Not sure how your internal wiring is arranged now you have added a HD, but you should not have the original HD cable connected to the sys. bus. board as well as the USB internal connector, this would give you a problem.

As mentioned earlier, there's a full description in the manual.

Go HERE for step-by-step instructions.(Page 109 onwards)
