Atari never produced hard drives for the 8-bit Atari, but the following
were produced and marketed to Atari users by third parties.
==> Corvus hard drive (5MB, 10MB, or 20MB)
(some Corvus info from an eBay auction by Ben Corr, 7/03)
Attaches via joystick ports 3 & 4 on the Atari 800 only.
-- Corvus Integrator Board - alows access to the Corvus Disc without the
Corvus software, so that any DOS that uses standard SIO calls will work.
-- Corvus Multiplexer - used to network up to 8 Ataris to one Corvus Drive
-- Corvus Mirror card - back up the drive’s contents onto video tape
==> SupraDrive Atari Hard Disk, by Supra, later K-Products. 10MB or 20MB.

Some limitations on drive type and size and total number of drives in sys.
