All "modern" Syquest drives I've seen are SCSI; the one I have is an oldie
whose platter holds only 10MB.  The drive itself is ST-506 and formats and
operates just fine on the 3B1.  I bought it used from Weird Stuff Warehouse
several ago and don't know if they have any more; the 10 MB media was a
pain to find and the most I was ever able to locate were approx. 30 disks,
so I don't use this drive for anything "serious."

One guy in our Users' Group apparently has a prototype card using a 68HC11
and some new WD chip on a daughterboard ... the whole assembly plugs into
the WD1010 socket on the 3B1 motherboard, and apparently supports 2,7 RLL
and ESDI.  He claims to be adding SCSI and Ethernet support.  He didn't have
any updates at the February meeting, so I'll ask him again later this month.
