According to Internet archives Sp2000s was offered on petersplus.com since May 22, 2003 in a few flavors:

  • the board only for $128;
  • assembled computer with floppy drive only + TITD game CD for $169;
  • the board + VGA? adapter for $199;
  • assembled computer with hard drive 400-600 MB + VGA? + TITD game CD for $265.

Web site petersplus.com died before end of 2003 so it's unknown if board was sold or not after that.

NOTE: Connector IDE 2 currently doesn't work because Altera PLD is not wiring it properly to internal logic, so you need to use IDE 1 only to connect 2 IDE devices to the same bus - 1 master (HDD) and 1 slave (CD-ROM).

PREDECESSOR: Sp2000 board.

SUCCESSOR: So called Sp2003s community supported build based on Ivan Mak? files.
