That makes sense, I was thinking a drive bridge of some sort.  Didn’t they also make SCSI to ESDI bridge?  I think my first ESDI drive came out of an old Sun enclosure with one (I only took the drive).  I miss the good old days of scrounging.  We had a guy that was an Apartment Manager in the area, that was also doing scrapping, and I’d buy parts and systems off of him.
