I thought about it but the problem is with finding all the deprecated
40 pins connectors, designing the circuit (that would probably mandate
a double sided PCB), making it.... Lot's of troubles for a result that
is not even guaranteed.

Another, better solution, would be an ISA bus extender for the Q40/Q60,
so that a second IDE controller card can be plugged (along the first
one and the Ethernet card); I still have a couple such IDE (in fact
IDE + serial + parallel ports) cards, but with the two slots already
occupied on the Q60, I cannot use them.

But I still don't despair to find a memory card adapter that will allow
us to share the IDE bus and that does work...
