Unless an optional board is installed, the wide Centronics-like connector is
SCSI. It's pretty easy to tell if it's in there, it lives on a set of
standoffs right behind the connector, and the ribbon cable moves from the
mail board to it.

BTW, a 380 can be upgraded to a 385 (33 MHz) with a osc change (socketed!)
and a jumper moved. The '040 in mine has no trouble running at 33MHz, and I
just picked up 16MB of RAM for it (Thanks, Jim!).
