Hm, I think an hp340 _does_ have built-in SCSI... not all hp300 models
do.  Some only have built-in HP-IB (and a slow one, at that).

HP-IB connectors are always IEEE-488 connectors, and there won't be
HP-IB connectors inside the case of the SPU.

If it had room for internal SCSI, the drives (and thus the connectors) would
have been in the very front of the machine, right behind the grille.  Is
that where the connectors are?
