Not many but they do show up. I'll keep my eyes open.
Another thing that the original poster could do just occurred to me. The
double-wide dual attach cards only use the second sbus slot for power.
Sun sold a kit for people who wanted to use their ZX cards in Ultra 1's
that had a cable to plug into the second sbus slot and into the
powersupply. If one of those could be found, it might be possible to get
a double-wide card to work.
