Motherboard manual here:

- From http://www.parkytowers.me.uk/thin/wyse/941gxl/

"The flash is a DOM plugged into one of the two 40-pin IDE connectors."

"One thing to note is that there are no spare power connectors other
than a small two-pin connector that matches the one connected to the DOM."

"Note: The keyway pin on the IDE connector is missing. In some thin
clients this is present, at least on the first IDE interface, as it is
used to directly power a DOM. In it's absence you have provide power
to a DOM through a separate connector."

Ebaying a busted one sounds like a winner to me.
