Also doesn't matter on the "big" models. The 4000/500 is the fullsize-QBus-box,
like the 4000/400 (the difference is just CPU clock and cache AFAIK), and so
it doesn't have the onboard-SCSI controller.
It boots file off any MSCP-compatible controller, but the internal DSSI
controllers are not yet supported. I drive my 4000/400 off a KFQSA, with a
nice internal wiring to the internal DSSI disks. The machine boots off disk
and works stable.
