> Sergio,

Thank you for the your interest, Joe :-)

Your information is VERY valuable. Only rests the problem of the Bus Slots
the HP9000/380. While the previous 200 and 300 Series appear to have "edge"
my 380 have these that somebody named here "Euro Slots" or something so.
Somebody talked too about some kind of slot conversor. What's about this ?

Thanks and Greetings
Best Regards

> Are you still interested in connecting a HP 9885 to your HP 9000/380?
I've been going through some of my old HP manuals and I've found a lot more
info. You definitely need the HP 98622 GPIO interface. The standard 98622
has a 50 pin female Ampenol connector (ie "SCSI" connector) and you'll have
to make you're own cable. But if you find a 98622 option 002 interface it
already has a 0.8m cable and connector for the 9885 disk drive. It also has
the jumpers already set for use with the 9885 drive. The 98622 jumpers
should be set as follows; BSY and BSY 0; PCL, PFLG, PSTS, HSHK, DIN, DOUT,
RD, RDY, RD, RDY all set to 1. I know there appear to be some duplcates in
the lists above but that's the way they're shown in the 98622 manual. I
have the pin outs of the 98622 but I don't have them for the 9885. At least
I don't have them readily available.
