Hi Bryan,

I don't know for sure but I can't imagine the firmware that comes with
a different piece of hardware is going to be of any use to fill the gap.

I would suggest substituting the entire board with the SCSI only controller
you bought.  That should at least get you access to SCSI hard disks.

To be able to use the floppy, you will need a second board that goes
between the floppy cable and the SCSI controller.  Maybe that might be
included in what you bought, maybe not.

Another possibility would be to try contacting the person whose website
you got the picture from and asking him to copy his EPROM.
