David --
    Thanks for your reply.  I'm feeling quite ignorant now -- I didn't 
realize the RSM differential HVD wouldn't direct connect to the SE coming 
out the back of the sparcstation.  Do you think it would be worth it to buy 
an adapter, or should I just forget it and use the drives individually?  I 
don't know anything about their reliability or cost, although I wouldn't 
want to spend much more than $40 or so.  Thanks for the advice.

You're trying to use the scsi controller on the motherboard? You need
a differential (HVD) controller. They're not compatible.
