"    I am a bit confused in terms of which cable I should use to hook up a 
" new array(D1000) that I just got.  It requires a differential SCSI 
" controller but I don't know if there is a special cable that I need so that 
" I don't screw anything up.  I have HD68-HD68(pn 501-1884) cables right now, 
" but I hesitate to use them until I know for sure.  TIA

the cables -should- be the same.

diff scsi uses differential pairs [duh!] for every signal.  se scsi
interleaves grounds between the signals.  this is at the
driver/receiver though, not in the cable.
