   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
