and it does.  Mr. Bill was gifted an early T1000, which shipped, I believe, with a single 3.5" 1Tb SATA drive internally.

But this isn't the point of my question.

I have one expansion slot that, per the specs I look up, is PCI-E 1.0a.

At this point I am looking to acquire some type of PCI-E SCSI adapter, and in coordination with the ACARD SCSI->SATA adapters 
mentioned by Mike Spooner yesterday, attach some additional storage (external) storage.

Thank you,
