 The IBM SCSI connector IS known commonly as a RS-6000 . You might get one
cheaper if you refer to it as such. I have 2 PS2s in need of these but will
build my own before I pay that outrageous price. They are snapped up quickly
when they come up for sale on hardware.ps2. $40-60. I'm amazed
that some enterprising soul hasn't come up with an adapter, since the regular
SCSI cables are readlly available. Trust IBM to do it their way. Let us know if
you find a cheap source.
