   Uhhhh...you just typed it above.  It's a single-ended ultra fast wide 
SCSI-3 interface.  Sounds like a 68-pin connector, though...did you 
notice both rows?

   The Ultra2 will be a pain because of the way the bays work, unless 
you use an external chassis.  The SS10 will be fine but most of the 
speed of the drive will be wasted.  Adapters for these are readily 
available, cheaply, on eBay...I bought a couple of them a few weeks ago.
