Unfortunately, he needs an HVD card.  However, the Sun card in your
E4000 (assuming that you are using the PCI I/O board, and not the SBus
one) should be flashable for PC use.  If my memory serves, the Sun
X6541A dual differential (HVD) pci card is identical to the LSI 22802
card, and thus the fcode and be replaced by a PC SCSI BIOS.  I've done
this, in the other direction, several times.

The good news is that those cards go for dirt, these days.
Anysystem.com has the Sun version for $20+ship, for instance.

Good luck!
