ACA500 will also get a "bigger brother": A version for the A2000 with IDE port and separated CF card slot, which has an additional circuit to support hot-plugging for a lot more CF cards.

That funny spoke on the card is meant for protection against inserting it reversed. It'll push against the front case if you try to insert it the wrong way round, keeping you from pushing it in.

Also, the 34-pin cable that connects the CF card adapter (meant to be installed in place of the second disk drive) has reverse-polarity tolerance: The computer will start up fine, nothing will break, but some software will be able to tell you that the cable should be connected the other way round.
