Ah, sorry. I didn't get it. You want it to be universal.
I was thinking you could act like most common controllers and encode
data that was actually on a server, a sort of "nfs server with an st-506
I never thought about it the way you are proposing... hummm... :-)
(lately I've been making MSCP disk images with simh and then dd'ing them
onto zip drives and booting them on an pdp-11, so you can see why I'd
be in the 'server' mindset. I really want a SCSI server....)
