Heh. The VME chassis is in a drawer with all of the scsi cables fed up
into 6 other drawers, each that holds 4 drives.
It's 50 pin IDC ribbon on the edge of the VME cards. It'd be possible to
replace it all, but it'd be a bit of a mess.
They moved from VME chassis to this gigaring thing at some point. Wish I
could find the boards for the thing and the gigaring box, but stuff ain't
This is the VME box:
(Pic of a different system, but you get the idea)
I was thinking I could keep it somewhat stock looking and just drop 3.5"
drives in there.
Perhaps 24 of those 50 pin to 68 pin adaptors would work.
