Hmm..  I'm running an SP3G with an SC-200 OK. However, I've disabled
the on-board controller. Well, actually, the on-board controller
somehow got fratzed so I had to buy the SC-200 to get SCSI working again...
Before that, I had a $15 connecter that plugged into a normal PC
expansion slot as a slot cover that has a Honda plug externally, and a
50 pin internal SCSI male plug internally. Great thing to pass the
internal SCSI on an SP3G to external.
