I saw a site the other day while netsurfing, I can't remember the URL unfortunately. Someone actually developed a homebrew QBUS IDE controller. It doesn't support DMA, only PIO though. It might be slow and IDE blows as a standard but DSSI is dead and these RF30's I have won't last forever. Is there a driver in the works for this? I'm sure I'm not the only one on the list to see it, I'm sure if you look on google you can find it. I need more drive space and BSD isn't as small as it used to be. It took a lot of work to squeeze 1.5 on two RF30's hehe.
Anybody know of a company dumping cheap QBUS SCSI cards that speak MSCP? eBay hasn't had any in a while and the distributers want like $800 for one. The only reason I'm whining is one of my drives is on the verge of dying and this machine has sentimental value :)
