That depends on form factors, of course. While most Zorro cards indeed are
full-length, there is a number of shorter cards which will work in tandem with
a half-length ISA card. My mate with an ISA NE2000 has got a Buddha IDE
controller in the Zorro slot behind the NIC, for example. There were some SCSI
controllers of such length, too.
