No, you're not crazy! You just got an AMAZING deal!

Unfortunatly the manuals on my FTP site look to be for the UC07/08, not the
UC17. Also, I've not heard of anyone putting SCSI on such an old PDP-11,
it will be interesting to hear what your results are. On problem I can
think of is that you'll probably have to toggle in an MSCP bootstrap.

Please let us know how this goes, like I said, it will be interesting to know.
