If you can convert the physical interfaces, you should be able to use any
SCSI drive. SCSI is supposed to be (and in my experience up to Ultra160 LVD)
backwards compatible all the way down from 160 to 5.

I'm guessing you'll need a 50-pin to SCA adapter, which shouldn't be too
hard to find, but some clone makers used different interfaces (Tatung's
Ultra 2 had 68-pin SCSI as opposed to Sun's 80-pin, as I recall) so it might
be either difficult or painfully easy to use an SCA disk.
