Getting an actual "SSD" with a SATA to SCSI connection is a waste of money, of no advantage and no real point.

If you already have the Artimix CF or SD drive, you effectively have a "SSD" as any sort of sd/cf memory card is a form of "Solid State" memory. Using an actual SSD hard drive will not yield any advantage to speed or data contingency at all as SD/CF memory will often utilize the same form of nand memory used in SSD drives.

You'd hook it up the same way one would hook up a zip drive or any internal scsi card reader.

As richie mentioned it's definitely not worth it installing an SSD hard drive in the 3000.
Even if you install it and depending on your OS chips, you are still stuck with the same 26 partitions at 33mb each = 858MB total.

Stick with your Artmix SCSI card reader (I have the RaizenMonster in my 3000LE) and you'll be fine.
