Yes, googling turned up a number of your messages from a decade
or more ago. You still have a pile of them, but you never had
an interface card? As I said, there's a fellow on eBay selling
them cheap and new-in-box for $10.
Apart from the card and the drive, there's the question of
the DOS driver software disks. I imagine it was just an API
and there weren't any tools at the DOS level.
You mentioned you'd never seen the SCSI CM110. This fellow
seems to have one. It looks like he had connections to Eindhoven.
