I didn't mean a USB flash drive, I admit that would be pretty futile with
the USB bottleneck. I was more interested if anyone knew of any internal
flash drive technology that's available for purchase. Something similiar to
an SATA or IDE hard drive replacement. I know there are 16GB NAND flash
drives out there, I just don't know what interface they use, and if they're
available for public purchase.
