ompaq makes two Armada-series docking stations that may work for LD2000 users. Both of these are compatible with multiple Armada notebook families, including Armada E700, Armada E500, Armada M700 and Armada M300 (with Mobile Expansion Unit). They are not compatible with Armada 1000, 3000, 4000, 6000 or 7000 Series notebooks.

Three PCI slot solution

The ArmadaStation EM (model 120266-001) has three PCI slots, so you can install up to three QM2000 boards. It is relatively large: 18" x 16.9" x 5" (45.7 x 42.9 x 12.6 cm) and weighs 18.3 lbs (8.3 kg).

One PCI slot (?) solution

The Armada Convenience Base EM (model 382500-001 or 120971-001) appears to have one PCI slot. The slot is marked on the diagram below, but is not in the "Features" list at Compaq's website. So you may want to double-check with Compaq before buying.
        The Convenience Base EM appears smaller but actually has a similar footprint to the ArmadaStation EM, with dimensions of: 17.2" x 16.7" x 3.8" (43.6 x 42.4 x 9.7 cm). It weighs about 50% less: 9.5 lbs (4.3 kg).
