No idea about the Compaq stuff, but I picked up a FC disk the other
day that was being discarded. I'd been told that "there's no such thing
as a FC disk - they're all SCSI really". Well this one is a Seagate
ST31820FC and has a 40-way (not 80-way) SCA connector on the back.

Any chance that this is SCSI in disguise :-) If so I'll go nab
a few of the 32GB ones for my VAXen, otherwise I get to try
the 9GB SCSI LVD ones instead!
