Hi Cameron.  Good to see you around.

Yes, the IIsi adapter will work, except, it will point it's expansion 
slot horizontally where there isn't room for a card.   So one needs 
to use an extra Euro-Din connector of the right-angle type to adapt 
it to vertical.   No soldering is required, as the pins of the 
connector will fit nicely in the IIsi adapter's connector's holes. 
This is explained in clearer detail on Gamba's site.
