Well, several private correspondants have let me know all about
the "infameous NCR SCSI driver".  Which leaves me with 7 multias
of dubious utility.  So, a few more quesitons:

1) What would be a reliable PCI SCSI card for the Multia?  Speed
is not an issue (if that's not obvious); price is.

2) Perchance while I wasn't looking did someone written a driver
for the IDE interface that's on the Multia's motherboard but not,
to the best of my knowledge, supported by any OS that runs on it?
3) Is someone working on a complete ground-zero rewrite of the 
aforementioned NCR SCSI driver?
