[Wolves] Wanted: SCSI CD drive to borrow

Hi, I'm on the scrounge again :)

Does anybody have a SCSI CD drive I could borrow? Not sure what the name of the SCSI connection is, but it looks like an IDE connector, just wider with more pins and uses a SCSI ribbon cable which again looks like an IDE cable but with more holes, like the back of this:


and this:


I've been given a Sun Ultra 30 and it has no optical drive and doesn't seem to like my ancient floppy drive, being non x86 I can't drop the HD in another machine and install it that way and the version of openboot doesn't support DHCP or TFTP. I've been given some stuff on Sun net booting but it's a little hairy and non-trivial. As before, I've had at least 2 of these drives pass through my hands in the last few years and have passed them on. I will only need it for a week or two.

Yours cheekily (again),
