I found the appropriate Wiki page (http://www.linux-mips.org/wiki/Cobalt) and I believe I can deal with the RAM part. OTOH as regards the hard drive, the page is a bit evasive: exactly what kind of HD can I put there (one for a laptop perhaps)? Will I need any duct tape to fasten the second disk? Is there anything special I should know about the operation?All you need is a new IDE cable since the default one only has the Master connector and you need the Slave as well.Apart from that it should be easy.Oh, you also need a Molex splitter since the default one is only good for one drive.
If you have some soldering experience it's also quite easy to fit the components for the second IDE channel (it's just a handful of resistors, a diode and the connector IIRC).
