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...
