You can use the KZQSA for disks but it was never supported or
recommended because it was too slow to be useful (or at
least OpenVMS felt that way). AFAIK, it does work.

Whether you can boot off it or not depends on your systems
console firmware.

All the KZQSAs I ever saw came with the S-box style handles.
This means that it will not work in a BA23 or BA123 case. It
was designed for the BA200 series.
