Regarding the powersupply: "my" MVII has two RD54 and Two RD53, plus a
TK50 (it's "full").. i cant imagine modern scsi drives even approaching
half the power need of that setup, so I wouldn't worry about putting
Y cables om teh powerconnectors and loading it with disk :)

Hehehe.. Mine has :) but its mounted with Gaffa tape - the "rubplastic"
hinge broke after too many resets & halts when installing NetBSD 1.3.2 :)
