The Young Minds, Inc. CD-Studio was/is a 486 MB with custom BIOS and at
least one 1542. There was another card in the machine but I don't
remember if the 1542 or the other card was connected to the workstation
end. One SCSI bus went to your workstation/PC/Mac, the other went to a
HD and CD-R. The CD-Studio emulated an Exabyte 8200 on a couple of
LUN's. One was to control the CD-Studio functions, another was for the
CD-R, another for the dedicated HD, and still another for a Rimage CD
printer. Probably yet another LUN for a robot for automated duplication.
The more I think about it, the more I'm certian the 1542 connected to
HD and CD-R.
