I have a DEC 3000/500S, which uses 50-pin narrow internal cabling, and a
68-pin wide drive I want to use in it.  Does anyone know where I can buy
a *WORKING* adapter (preferably low-profile) that will let me connect
the wide drive to the internal 50-pin SCSI bus?  I stress "working"
because I mail-ordered one before, and it wouldn't work.  I'm guessing
it was wired up incorrectly, as mentioned in the SCSI FAQ.

Sources willing to accept university purchase orders are a definite
plus.  Low-cost is also a bonus.  BTW, do I have to get an adapter with
high-byte termination, or is that unnecessary?

Thanks in advance for any help keeping this ol' DEC alive!
