Yes... Zorro was the name for the 100-pin Amiga system bus. "Zorro I"
refers to mostly-square cards for a very few expansion products for
the A-1000. I saw one, once, in 1986. Mostly what you are likely to
see are "Zorro II" cards - PC-form-factor, with lots more pins, and on
the opposite end of the card - allowing products like the GG2 Bus+ to
exist (which has along one edge, ISA *and* Zorro II fingers).
