I have a bunch that don't have scsi and I currently have one booted
diskless being an lpd server and it works just fine... I ran X on
one once and it 'worked' but wasn't going to win any prizes for lightning
fast response...

SCSI is an option on these things.  Generally a card that plugs into the
one and only DIO slot.  Sometimes you'll find a GPIO card in that slot
that looks suspiciously like a SCSI card but don't let that fool you,
cuz it's not a SCSI card. :-)

Ethernet is always there though.
