DSSI in a BA123?

Ok, this is the challenge. NetBSD runs flawlessly on my KFQSA in the 3900
but hangs using the SIGMA RQ11D in my uVax 3. Since I have an "extra" KFQSA
(now knowing how to configure it!) I could put it into my BA123 but that
appears to be a challenge when no documentation is present :-)

Some questions:
        1) The Controler <-> drive cable, can I crimp a three appropriately sexed
IDC connectors on to flat ribbon cables for hookup?

        2) How to hook up the drive control panel? The 3900 has a connector that
is wired to the bulkhead and the drive, it also holds a "unit number" plug.
The BA123 has its normal DRIVE 0 WP/Ready control with a different sized
connector. Can I adapt it to the RF7x series drive? How?

        3) DSSI terminators connect to the scsi like DSSI connector, if I put a
SCSI 2 connector on my cable can I use an active SCSI 2 terminator instead?

As always, thanks!
