If you're not set on Adaptec, I having been running with several LVD
drives on a TekRAM-390U2W controller. It works fine, and it's a lot
cheaper than Adaptec. If you only have LVD drives, you could use the
TekRAM-390U2B, which only has one SCSI bus. The 390U2W has two busses
so you can have the LVD on one bus and SE on the second, although I
believe there's only one SCSI master for the two busses. I'm
presently only using the LVD bus on my 390U2W.
