Other people with other expansions might have similar questions..
The answer to this is easy, and maybe disappointing at first sight: ACA500 does not allow any other expansion than a chipmem expansion. As mentioned yesterday night, the lower 68000-adapter will block the 86-pin port to send a clear message: Nothing allowed here. Further, the 68000 socket will have to be empty, otherwise the mechanical mounting concept won't work.

I know you guys want some halfway portable machine, and if I want to achieve the low price that I have announced, then support must be kept to a minimum. Any other piece of hardware will require support, and neither I, nor my resellers will be able to do that for such a low price. As a result, I'll provide something that relies on a "fixed architecture".
