Yeah, it would, if you had the right cables.

My adapter is going to James Lockwood, but I got it from hitechcafe
for $25 a couple weeks back.  Looking now, they're still selling
them (DEC DWZZB-MA), but they're $49 now:


What you get is a circuit board with two ultra-high-density 68-pin
female connectors and a standard disk-drive-type power connector;
its intended to be an embedded solution but you can just tape it to the
inside of a disk enclosure or whatever.
