  Cool. I think I have 2 host boards, the drive drawer, and no SI9900.
  Oh, well. In all honesty, my network & storage setup is such that
remote filesystems are very satisfactory for most of my slower machines.

  Heh. Not to mention that I don't see SMD drives all that often
either. Maybe I'll stick the SI boards on eBay as "Totally Cool,
Ultr_at_R_at_re Mystery QBus Adapters".....

  Thanks to all for the information.
