Hi Fabio
I Would like a backplane board also. infact 2
Deos anyone know if the 8 Slot is the only option now.
I thought i saw or read about an 18 slot board on s100 computers.com.
I hope we can get enough orders to justify another batch.
Im just getting started on an s100 computer so i would be interested in just about any board at this point. Especially the dual cf card / hard disk ide board
