Formatted Pertec is a fairly simple interface. Chuck has talked in the
past of designing one, and some of the gotchas with the interface.
Qualstar built two different styles of Pertec-SCSI adapter for the 1054.
I'll see about putting board pics and rom dumps up, but as has
been discussed, SCSI has problems when talking to tapes.
I think Pertec - Ethernet is the way to go, and not mess around with
SCSI or USB.
