the adaptec AHA1520 are pretty cheap and do the job. i've got one and a sony DDS
12/24 and it reads/writes ok. the 1520 have a scsi II interface on the backplane
and the usual pins setup internally. software setup as usual. i had a bit of
trouble setting it up under linux at first, but there was this really good linux
user group in sydney that helped me get it going... :-)
check the archives for what i did if you need to.
