I almost had a PDP-11/34 using disks on 486 box (with bus mastering
VLB SCSI ) I was using a dr11c -> 16 bit I/O port on the ISA bus
(I/O bord was mostly the same as a pc parallel port but not quite)
It did speak both ways but I never finished any device drivers,
I ran it using PIO on the unibus side.. (Hey cut that out, the
computer's almost older than I am.)
The Q-Bus equivalent should be fairly straight forward,
not fast as a disk device but probably faster that
10Mbit ethernet for NFS
