The card is wide SCSI... the internal side has both wide and narrow.
You can get a 50 pin ribbon cable to PC slot cover with a either a 50 pin
SCSI2 connector or one of those DB25 SCSI connectors used by the old Mac's
and early PC's to bring the 50 pin bus external.
Either that or I may have a 2940 Narrow interface here that I'd swap.
