ooof, if that thing is HVD, then plugging it into a regular SCSI card 
will likely blow up the card, and could fry the SCSI interface on the 
library too.

however, this manual, 
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00626568.pdf   suggests there's 
two versions, HVD and regular fast-wide SE scsi.   quite a bit of 
cabling is required.
