I have to admit - I know quite little about 11/750 hardware
and how it operates, but this will probably change :-) At this time
there are 2 RP07-s and one CPU cabinet that work and 1 CPU and drive
And yes, Massbus is used for attaching the drives. But those
drives (in my case RP07-s) are also huge, power hungry and
considerably old. So i'm looking for SCSI card in hope to use some
older SCSI drives as a replacement.
