I'm having trouble getting a definitive match for that part number too,
but it *appears* to be a 911 Multi-Disk Pack.  It'll hold four 3.5"
disks, originally Seagate Hawk 1, Hawk 2 or Hawk 2LP.  I don't have a
911 myself, but I'm pretty sure you need a HD50 narrow-SCSI cable. 
*Always* use active SCSI terminators.  Open it up and look at the
contents -- if it's a 911 there should be a chassis in there to hold
four disks mounted on their sides.

Careful what you put in it, standard 911 power supplies are 60W units
that'll only supply about 4-4.5A each on 5v and 12v.
