SCSI for HP 9000/380

The SCSI connector on the bulhead of the 380 CPU card is a standard 50 
pin SCSI-1 single ended SCSI connector.  Like most SCSI initiators the 
bus is terminated on the system board.  The built in interface is 
equivalent to the 98568A DIO SCSI interface card.  I have never tried to 
boot from a tape drive, but I do know that booting from CDROM and disk 
does work.
