The 3000/300 machines have a half speed TURBOchannel.
That uncovered bugs in a few TC cards. There were also bugs in some
of the TC interface chips/logic on the 3000/300. The rev level of
the motherboard can be significant.
A list of TC cards/platforms that are known to work might be helpful.
I doubt if it will get big enough so that it becomes hard to maintain.
[I worked on a TC card that had problems on a /300. I've forgotten
or supressed all the details.]
