Ok, that's regular (narrow) SCSI. You can't put an IDE disk on a SCSI
controller. You'll either need to get an IDE controller or a SCSI
disk and a SCSI cable. And if you opt for a SCSI disk, it has to be
narrow (50 pin) SCSI, wide (68 pin) won't work.

Check the local computer stores (Computer Clearance Center, Computer
Outlet, etc) or the Peter Trapp show (May 17) or maybe you can make a
deal with Dennis (droneill).
