The Ultrabays themselves are IDE.  The bay above the Ultrabays is 
designed for a SCSI device.  The machine was available with the choice 
of several tape drives in that bay, the most popular being an IBM-badged 
Exabyte VXA.

The only thing odd about that drive bay is that it uses a proprietary 
drive power cable.
