This is no longer true.  I just had a blurb from AT&T faxed to me that
SCSI support is available for the 386 SysVR3.2.2.  The AT&T 6386E/33
(made by Intel)  has an internal SCSI as the boot device.  The other
models use ESDI for the the boot device but can add SCSI for secondary
I quote:
"AT&T 6386 WGS computers enhanced with SCSI support the suite of AT&T
3B2 SCSI peripherals."
Sounds encouraging to me (but then I'm not manufacturing 3B2's....).
