Something I've been wondering about. These boards look to have been used
to convert ESDI to SCSI for stuff like Apollo's and Sun's. Could they be
used to convert a SCSI drive to work on an ESDI controller?

Feel free to ask if I'm out of my Freaking mind, I've never really taken
the time to look at them. Actually not sure I want to know, I think I gave
the box of such things away.
