yeah yeah a quick email before work should have had a "this is just 
something to suggest a direction".  had scsi on my mind since i just 
recovered a couple 50pin drives via adaptec format for my indy and 
challenge s machines.

a qlogic 2200 works great especially if you own sgi equip with pci 
since irix 6.5 recognizes them off the bat ;)  should also work in 
suns, qlogic runs well cross platform.

im sure the OP has the issue solved by now though :)
