[Q] Does anyone know if you need one of the expansion boxes to connect your
Aero to a standard monitor/keyboard? The instruction manual came with the
pinouts for the expansion port, and it looks like I could build the connector
pretty easily and save myself $50.00 or so. I'd like to do it by finding a
source for the strange connector, but I might end up just winging it and
connecting pins manually. Does anyone not think this would work?

[A] I thought about doing this but I figured the pain in the butt of finding
the connecters and dicking with all the wires was worth $50. Anyway, I just
pulled mine open and there seems to be a few C's and R's, probably to protect
the machine from this and that. I dropped it on the scanner so you can have a
look, see- http://www.netlib.org/utk/people/ReedWade/cpq_expbox.gif
