Luckily this Re pack is in a desktop so there is a fair bit of room. I would still love a few pictures. It would help me out looking at layouts. The disto is a pretty big controller compared to the fd502

I did a repack with the disto, and 4 in one in a mini tower case. The
way I did it was remove the cart connector and put it back in at a 45
degree angle so the disto card went back over the mother board. Ran this
until a couple years ago the disto crapped out. 3 floppies, and 2 hard
drives, Pupo keyboard adapter, etc. If you want pics on how I did it,
let me know. Made a nice package.
