On a related note. I have several machines with HPIB/GPIB/IEEE-???
type interfaces, and occasionally see disk drives with the same interface.
Is the protocol such that one size fits all? Is there a good HPIB reference
available that someone could recommend? Could a PC with a GPIB card act
as a file server, or is there some host/slave dichotomy that prevents such
