I think I have some SCA to 50 pin adapters but don't know if they have 
termination or what. Bad news is the are in storage inside the Cray down 
in Norfolk. Next time I am down there I can grab them for you. I had 
bought them to use SCA disks in place of the original 5.25" FH 9GB Seagate 
drives that were in the system that were missing, but at the time I didn't 
realize that Unicos looks for SCSI IDs of Cray part numbers to use disks.

Still need to dump that disk firmware and put it out in the wild.
