I'm not entirely sure what `fair dinkum' means :-), but the SC-200
is an NCR card just like any other, as far as I can tell. (I've
used about four of those and one Gigabyte.) There's not much a
manufacturer can do with the card; you basically just plunk the
chip on it and you're done.

I've seen the chip stepping make a difference, though. The gigabyte
one I used had a '94 chip on it, and that had to be replaced with
a '95 chip before it would work properly.
