The simple way would be to go buy a label maker along with an A100 body. Using the label maker you print out one label saying 'minolta' and a second one with 'X-700' on it. You then cover over the Sony name and A100 on the new camera you bought.
Other than that, there is no simple way or any other way to convert the X700 to digital. You can buy an adapter to fit your MF lenses to the A100, but you can only use them in stop-down mode as there is no electronic connection between the body and lens. Taking pictures using step-down will slow you down quite a bit.
Minolta did try long ago to try and develop a 'digital' adapter to allow film cameras to use an electronic film, but that didn't go anywhere, so you're out of luck.
