Yeah, google stuff helped there.

Interesting.  I don't have any spares to swap, yet.  However, now that you
mention it I'm not at all certain that I put the scsi riser card (between
the frontplane and the drive board) in correctly.  It has a notation
printed on it about which side goes out, but you can still spin the board
180 degrees, so there's two possibilities.

Jeez, now I've got to take it apart again.  Think it'll run without the
riser and sca board?

Go ahead and send me some details off-list, if you don't mind.
