It's doable, I think...depending upon your availale slots and such.

There were cards from Trantor and Future Domain for SCSI on 8-bit
PC slots... -- under controller cards.

  ISA 8BIT SCSI-2 H/D ONLY+ $5.00
 Item #: TMC850 Manufacturer: FUTURE DOMAIN
 Item #: TMC850MER Manufacturer: FUTURE DOMAIN
 Item #: RT1000B-2 Manufacturer: RANCHO TECHNOLOGIES

The main trick will be finding SCSI drivers for these babies if you
want to use anything beyond bios access on 'em.
