Looking at my dead Plus Hardcards (one Plus Hardcard 40 and two Plus Hardcard
IIXL 120s), I wouldn't expect it... looks like some sort of proprietary connector.

Speaking of which, the BIOS EPROM on these things tends to go bad over time;
they won't boot a machine and I can't access them even though a 386 can "see"
the hardware present (on the IIXL 120). I'm close to throwing them out; anyone
want them for trade or free+shipping?
