The drive bay assembly.
The complete drive bay assembly can be taken out of the case and has five 5.12" bays, two floppy drive bays and a bay for the operator panel. Drives are mounted on rails, or in a bracket in the case of 3.5" hard drives.
The floppy drive that came with the server was a 2.88MB model. It can be converted to work with Windows, but I preferred to go with a standard drive. It took some searching through my stash, but I finally found a drive that lined up with the case's bezel.
I didn't have any of the rails to mount an optical drive, but some similar rails worked perfectly once sawed down to size. I didn't mount an optical drive yet though, as I don't have the fitting bezel for the front of the case. An external USB enclosure does the job for now.
A nicely fitting floppy drive.
Making some random drive rails fit...
The bays with some drives in 'em. Also, kitty.
