Chuck,

  Be sure to go around the UPS a few times, that way if the power fails
you can just tap juice off the data cable!!!!

  One other note, be SURE to have interposers for EACH system (they go
between the 650x SCSI card and the cable) and Terminators on EACH cable
at the drive. Failure to use these will result it either or both of a)
The AS/400 not seeing the drive, or b) drive failure during data
transfer.

  Sounds like you could use it!!
