my $0.02
my UDB 166 doesn't have a true internal and external scsi bus like
the ncr810 cards. My internal HD is looped through to the external
connector on the back. In this case I don't believe it to be possible to
"terminate the internal scsi bus". Of course be careful that the internal
HD doesn't have the terminator. i found it to be very helpful to use a
active terminator too, once I plugged one in ALL my cd rom problems went
just my $0.02
