    this drive is connected using an adapter that converts an LC/LV (is this
    correct, off the top of my head) interface into a standard SCSI (narrow)

    Probably the opposite, but thats what you meant anyway, right :-

    I saw this on two Intel 440LX dual pIII 500/550 mobos, a bit different
    in age and scsi composition.
    I didn't install on either, but neither mobos wouldn't recognize _any_
    disks to better than 20MB/s, if at all, using some unnamed converter.
    Same disks (IBM 18G DDYS 10K + 9G DNES 7200) worked just fine with same
    converter and a 29160 controller.

    Kind regards,
    Mogens Valentin
