    A couple questions I have concerning SCSI devices....


    1) Scenario: You have a scsi cd-rom, 50-pin, and a scsi hdd, 68-pin. The adaptec adapter manuel says for automatic termination, you have to set the 'low/high' setting from 'on/on' to 'off/on'.

    Now I've hooked up scsi devices before, but only hdds. My question: by having a 50-pin device (cd-rom) and a 68-pin device (harddrive) both on the same scsi controller card...would that slow the hdd down? To me, it seems like I'm disabling the scsi wide aspect of the card.

    2) SCSI-1 is 8-bit, right?

    3) SCSI-2 is 16-bit, right? also known as scsi wide, right?

    4) What is Ultra wide?

    5) Is SCSI-3 and SCSI 160 the same thing?

    Thanks
