I'm a bit confused. I've got an M76 which I'd love to install a later
version of VMS on (it's currently on 5.5), but everything I've read has said
that the external SCSI connector is DEC-specific and needs a DEC BC09J cable
to attach normal SCSI devices to (a cable which I've not yet found at a
reasonable price). Is this not the case?
