TheRef says it is SCSI-2 and Fujitsu doesn't say.

Difference is max data rate and some higher level commands
added. SCSI-II is backward compatable.

It's an Inboard386... a meg or memory for that would be great
if possible.

SCSI card to an IBM-PC. I have an Adaptec 1522A ISA SCSI card
and likely others in my card box. Was there a SCSI card for the
PC ? If so, would this possibly, with this configuration, allow you to

It's doable, the only reason SCSI was not commonplace in PCs
the was the significantly greater cost at the time. Also back then
PCs could barely enjoy the potential performance advantage.
