 	 USB to IDE 2.5"/3.5" adaptor, for the princely sum of GBP 8.32
 	+ VAT gives a cable with USB on one and and a 3.5" + 2.5" drive
 	connectors on the other plus a laptop style power brick to provide
 	power to 3.5" disks.

 	Quite a handy way to hook up a random drive to your machine
 	without rebooting... and worked without problems on NetBSD-4
 	(so far :)

 	I'm not affiliated to ebuyer in any way, but I get them to ship me
 	boxes of arbitrary stuff every so often, and most of it works:
