603?  My manuals don't go back that far.  What kind of drive is that, and what does the controller connect to?

If it's a 6000 series channel interface, then that's very easy to deal with.  Channel to PCI-e interfaces have been built (out of FPGAs) and hooked up to DtCyber.  If it's some other type of channel, the same sort of answer would apply; none of those old channels are all that complex.
