cd32 serial link cable?

Hey anyone have the CD32 serial network kit for sale? I want to link my CD32 to use as a slave drive on my A1200.

If you are talking about the Kit produced by Weird Science back in the day then be warned it is very slow.
I might be wrong here but I seem to remember that you had to connect the cable to the CD32 via the Keyboard input and any data that is transferred between the CD32 and an A1200 crawls over the connection.

I bought the kit years ago when I had a CD32 and remember being very disappointed in the speed transferring data to my A1200 - not sure if there may be a better solution now... perhaps?

Yeah I had it too, same one. Always seemed ok enough for running apps from cover CDs to me though. my PCMCIA port is taken up with my cd adaptor and ethernet link already, and i have a cd32 sitting around doing nothing.
