I have sent Sy the similar message. Mayby you can also give me some
help. First, thanks for the information. I have a question
about the 2 M HD. Is the HD used by the Ultralite an "industry"
standard 68-pin JEIDA memory card? Poqet PC uses two of this
removable memroy card but the 1 M card costs about $500! The size of
the JEIDA card is about 86x54x3.5 mm (approx. 3 3/8 x 2 1/8 x 9/64 in).
It uses a CR-2325 or CR-2016 Lithium battery as the backup power.
Is the HD in the Ultralite removable?

I am using an automatic data compression program called "Squish Plus".
It, on average, has saved about 30% of disk space. With a block
size of 4k, it should save even more. Except
a little bit slower, it acts just like an ordinary disk.
It is marketet by Sundog Software Corp. (718-855-9141).
Thanks again.
