Search on Emulex QD24 and you'll be rewarded with the information that it
is an Emulex MSCP ESDI disk controller. Which can be just as useful as a
SCSI card since finding a couple of 300MB ESDI drives shouldn't be too
hard. I think I've got a 170MB one laying about somewhere.
Kirk Davis (kdb_at_ndx.net) mentioned he had some SCSI controllers he was
thinking about trading for PDP-11 gear. Also I just missed a lot that had
about 10 Dilog SCSI controllers on it at a local scrap/bid place (had I
known I would have bid more than the $75 it went for :-() my interest was
in the more mundane things like a couple of DSSI ID plugs and an external
DSSI disk expansion box.
