If there's enough room, you can use a converter to make the SCA disks fit
the 50-pin connector.  I've done this on numerous Sun and SGI machines over
the years.

Of course, you not only need physical room for the convertor, but the
machine/OS has to be able to handle the size of the disk you install.
