This one does have a jumper that disables target initiated wide
negotiation. I did try that and it didn't seem to help. The
docs I found also indicated that some of that model were shipped
with on-board termination. I tried jumpering the drive to
enable it, but that also didn't seem to help. I'd love to
hear that I'm just missing the magic jumpers, but so far no
combination I've tried works. The wierd thing is that the
drive doesn't even respond to the probe-scsi command from
the PROM monitor. But I plugged it into a wide interface
on a machine at work and all was well.
