Found this on hackaday. I'm thinking it might be easily modded into an XTA capable setup. I'm going to dig into how he made it tick tomorrow. Doesn't seem like a very expensive project. Probably beyond my skillset, but I'm going to give it a good hard look anyway.

Either way, it could be amazing for other vintage ATA machines, to be able to drag-n-drop copy new files directly, and live, to your XT/AT/386+'s "hard drive" using your modern machine through WiFi.

Alan is an active member here (eeguru). I believe he mentioned XTA compatibility being a possibility.

Oh, nice, I was able to find his original thread here now. I'm still too new to recognize folks names yet, but didn't surprise me that he's here :D
