Okay, here is the deal. My knowledge of SCSI is pretty basic - I hook up some devices, make sure each has a unique id.
But when it comes to adapters, I get lost a bit.
In my 8600 (G3 upgraded), I have one hard drive, a 68pin 9G Cheetah. It is, of course, connected to an 50/68 adapter. I also have a ribbon cable for 68 pin drives with a couple of connectors on it.
The thought crossed my mind: can I connect this ribbon cable to the adapter and then hook up more 68pin drives (jumpering each drive accordingly)?
Or will I let all of the magic smoke out of several core components of my only working desktop?
Can someone knowing better than I, please chime in?
*In my mind, I think I know the answer to this, but I just want to make sure before I do anything considering the two 950s I killed last year (serial port incident, not SCSI-related), still waiting for me to find time to fix them.
