Ok now here is a question that I have gotten _many_ conflicting answers 
What kind of SCSI controller is on the Sun3/160M system?  SCSI-1 or -2? 
I would like to get a drive for this system soon but the problem that I 
have right now is that I don't know what kind of drive I can hang off of 
Right now there is a 50 pin (3-rows) D-Connector on it (VME Board That 
is) and that's about all that I have to identify the VME board except for 
the fact that it has the label "SCSI" painted next to the port. 
Now the thing that is "confusing" is that I have heard conflicting rumors 
that I can hang a SCSI-2 HD off of a SCSI-1 controller or (the more 
logical) hang a SCSI-1 HD off of a SCSI-2 controller.  I'm realy confused 
as SCSI hardware has been a bit of "black magic" to me for the last 7 or 
so I knew it was there but wasn't going near it because the 
PC hardware was so exorbitantly expensive that it wasn't an option. 
Any help would be HUGELY appreciated. 

Out the interface, through the subnet, over the router, through the other  
subnet, out the Gateway...Nothing but 'Net.
