Ok, I´ve attached an image where to find the internal IDE Port, it´s near the power connector in the upper left corner, but pay attention to this : It´s an 2,5" HD connector with 44 pins !!! Normal 3,5" HD´s got 40 pins, the extra 4 pins are for power supply .... so what you need now is a 2,5" to 3,5" IDE cable, then you´re able to connect any 3,5" HD drive, even a CDRom to that connector ..... all you need then is a power cable to get the power from your floppy drive extended to fit into the 3,5" HD and voila (well, you may also use an external power supply from an old pc for supplying the HD with some power

About the disk drive, you may NOT use a 1,44MB PC floppy drive, that won´t work, only some rare 1,44MB drives from PC are capable of running in an Amiga as 880KB floppy ..... try to get an external drive and mount it inside your A600 .... don´t forget to use the jumper on the backside to turn it into floppy DF0: (yes, there ARE jumpers )

Any more questions ? Ask me
