try to describe the scsi bus and termination.
do a probe-scsi and a probe-scsi-all...

let me know what that does.

Great machine... I've got some Sun Parts if you need them including an
external disk and cd.

Plextor and Toshiba CD's and CD-R's have worked for me on them.
The old 2x toshibas are $3.50 at

My Teac's also have the 512 byte jumper as do IBM's.
