Hello Ethan,

I think those Sigma controllers are in the NetBSD supported
hardware list

Here's a message from Doug Meade, who got one of those
from me off eBay a couple of years ago, saying that he has
the manual.


Seems Tim Shoppa is familiar with those also ...

Sigma-rebranded version of the Webster WQESD ESDI controller. (DSD and
Qualogy also rebranded Webster boards.)


Mark Green is/was running one.

Pat Finnegan is/was too ... ( He must be busy this morning )


Best Regards
