  Yes it CAN be attached. You'd have to use the GPIO interface and probably have to write you're own drivers. The GPIO interface is the nearest thing to the original interface (HP 98034 option 85 IIRC) for the 9885. I THINK I remember that HP did make an 9885 interface for the early 9000 200 series computers but I don't remember the details. The original interface for the 9885 is a 16 bit parallel interface, it is NOT SASI or SCSI.
