Very interesting!  I"m a little confused as to whether it will work in the
sparcbook 3GX.  Physically I suppose it will fit in nicely.  The 3GX does
fast SCSI (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SCSI#Parallel_SCSI for reference).
which is 50-pin, 8 bit (not "wide") and will do 10MB/sec.  This adapter is
said to work in a Powerbook 100, so I'm guessing it must work.  However the
flier (http://www.artmix.com/CF_powermon_II.html) says "UltraSCSI-3".  I'm
guessing they may be referring to the "SCSI-3 SPI-2 (1997)", and that it is
8-bit 50 pin and backward compatible to fast scsi.
