I've been drooling over the V500 board for awhile now, and I'm ready to take the plunge and get my name on the wait-list. However, I'm a bit in the dark as to what else I need to make my old Amiga 500 work with current technology. Specifically:

1) What options (if any) are there available these days to make a vintage ECS A500 run with (a) modern flat-screen monitors, (b) printers, and (c) networking setups (Ethernet at the very least, but wifi would be great)?

2) Is there any way of copying the contents of my old external IDE hard drive to a MicroSD for use with the V500? How about files stored on old floppies?

Any advice about solutions, and/or potential problems and pitfalls to consider would be extremely helpful. Also, I'm an anthropologist, not an electrical engineer, so anything involving soldering probably won't be do-able :/ .
