I know there been a few projects/attempts at some IDE thing, but I dont 
think I've ssen any that's been completed.

The (other) obvious answer in a SCSI-controller, but SCSI controllers 
for Unibus are less common, and usually expensive.

And to make things "worse", you really would want something that 
implements MSCP, as otherwise you need to emulate a specific disk 
geometry and size. About the only controller that have dynamic size of 
the disk is MSCP.
