Brings back memories - the first pair of SCSI drives I ran "in anger" on a PC
were surplus from an Origin 2k, in about 1998 or so. Those were SGI-supplied
SCA-connector units - one was a 9GB and the other was just over 4 (4.3GB I
Both were IBM drives, although the drive firmware was custom so that they
reported themselves as SGI in response to an inquiry command - it makes me
wonder if at least some SGI models check for this and will barf on drives that
they don't think are 'SGI approved'?
