Nothing magic. the last one I had used was from a PC.

Your applying PC logic to it. It's is not Adaptec, i'ts just SCSI
(SCS1 or II) host and the NCR5380 is one of the early and common
chips used for that.

The brand applies to the "other" board, what is known as a SCSI
bridge board. Adaptec, Xybec, WD and other made them. You
need to know what board and what drive to do the formatting. If
you dont mind hacking Z80 code you can go frm an AMPRO LB
with SCSI to a smaller SCSI drive (64mb or less, or the rest will
be unused).
