So after attemping to add a new 40GiB drive to an old (ca. 1998) system
I had that was running FreeBSD 5.2.1, I discovered that the bios
couldn't handle large disks. In short, I attempted to flash the bios and
now I have a really awesome paperweight sitting on my desk. =-)

Rather than attempting to salvage the thing, I'm cannibalizing it for
parts and I want to get a used machine.

I'd rather not go the Ebay route if I have other options...can anyone
recommend a place in NYC that sells used (i.e. sub-$100) machines? Is
Tiger Direct a good place to buy from?

Any advice appreciated...
