A floppy drive is worth it just for the start up seek noises.

Now I want a hacked phone firmware, so I don't get forced Nokia tune....

did you complete it? i noticed the CD reader, some nice multimedia with the SB card. with 8mb total, sb card and cd its kinda like some of the 486s i remember, where owners had added various things to bring it into the mid 90's multi media world 😀 also, with this set up i'd be tempted to consider ide to sd or cf to give capacity and options for hard discs too, even 1gb would seem like a lot back then but 2 or 4 would be "huge". the 420hdd is good though, and more 'period correct'
