I'll raise you two 5ΒΌ" floppies and see you :-)

Sitting on a shelf I have a 30Mb HardCard which is a hard disk mounted
on a long-form ISA card. You lift the lid of your PC XT, push in the
card, close the lid, and reboot -- presto! you have a 30Mb D: drive. No
drivers, zero config. It still works, and on it I found a copy of
WordStar 1512 and a copy of TeX, all in functioning order. However, I
have not tried it under Ubuntu yet.
