I think so Paul. It was loaded with Win3KSvr and working fine. Something
Fedora does not seem to recognize it on the SCSI bus at boot. I tried doing
engage scsi command on it and the drive appears, but if you attempt anything
other than a status command it goes to lunch with an I/O error and off-lines
the drive.....very strange.
