I'd think that it would work...I mean, speaking from an hp300 point of 
view, at least...hp300 SCSI code only supports (officially) SCSI-I, but 
since SCSI-II is (supposedly) a superset of SCSI-I, it ought to work...
The drive just drops into a `compat' mode, I guess - At least, it always 
worked for me...
