Personally, I'd like to get ahold of a 425, or at the very least, an image of a 425 ROM card that I could write to a linear flash card and use in my 300 (apparently this can be done without problems). I like having the execute-in-place OS and programs, since it saves RAM in Windows, but the 300 won't use ATA compact flash cards, and it's extremely tight on conventional memory. So much so, that I can't really run CPACK200, especially if LLRA is active.
The OB300 1.1 ROM and 425 ROM both allegedly support ATA CF cards, and I think my OBMax problems stem from this being an English International model rather than a US model. Booting a US ROM might fix that.
If anybody knows where to find an OB425 ROM image, I would greatly appreciate it. It looks like it used to be available here, but the server isn't up any longer:
Or if somebody just has a dead OB300 with a US 1.1 ROM and wants to sell it cheap... :)
