[rescue] E450 wiping as we speak...

I don't know about connecting a whole bus to the laptop, but you could  
connect each drive to the laptop and wipe it with DBAN this way.  It  
ultimately comes down to whether you have the SCA 80 to 68-pin HD  
connector converter.  This converter is a circuit board with a 68-pin HD  
SCSI connector and a 4-pin Molex power on one side, and an SCA 80 male  
connector on the other.  Just connect the drive to the converter, and the  
laptop to the other side of the converter.
