Yes - he was thinking of ADTX...

This thread reminded me of the fact that some late model Powerbooks had 
these adapters. A trip to the basement of doom this afternoon turned up 
a Powerbook that had an ADTX adapter in it with a 2GB Toshiba drive. The 
IDE drive was bad, but more digging turned up a 6.4GB laptop drive. 
Plugged the two together and into the Voyager, and now probe-scsi is 
showing the ADTX device at SCSI ID 3.

So - now off to find some install media...

I need to deal with the IDPROM, and may still consider a SCSI2SD, but 
that's a little more back-burner now.

Thanks to all of you for the discussion and the reminder that provided 
the solution!
