Yes, the IPC/IPX/LX series will take half-height disks - I have an  
ancient 4GB half-height in mine right now. Who makes the adaptor? I  
have an Acard 7mumble that's too wide to fit in a 3.5" bay.

Earlier (pre-Ultra2) drives will often have jumper-selectable  
termination, especially 68-pin models. Some Ultra-Wide SCA drives  
even have a termination jumper. Ultra2/LVD specified that the  
terminator be on the cable, though.
