I used a 340MB IBM Microdrive with the Soekris net4501 for a short time 
indoors. Eventually abandoned this as a solution for website storage as the 
microdrive would power down after a few seconds of inactivity. Every time an 
HTTP request would come in, 2 seconds would pass before the drive was ready 
to read data. Was unable to find a fix for the power saving feature, went 
back to flash. No problems with the drive though. Found the drive on Ebay 
for $20..
