Basically *all* of the VME bus stuff I have uses two connectors... I've 
got a bunch of 68k/68010 processor boards, and some custom produced VME 
cards that were a part of a prototype parallel processing system 
designed at Purdue.  Unfortunately, I didn't get to it in time to save 
it in a working state or save any of the documentation : (.

Anyways, yes, 2 connectors is typical of VME systems.  If you want to 
get rid of the board, let me know...
