The multia supported 50 pin, 1" "regular" SCSI drives if the proper chassis is involved - there was a PCI chasis and a SCSI chassis. One could accomodate a short PCI card, the other would accept a 3 1/2" SCSI drive. I guess if you could live with the poor IDE performance, you could use a 3 1/2" IDE drive with the appropriate 44 pin to 40 pin adapter cable in a SCSI chassis...
