ISTR the Disto was actually a SASI interface, which was pre-SCSI but worked almost like it (more limited but basically the same). It was limited to one or two devices though, IIRC... most likely one. I don't know of anyone running more than one HD from a Disto "SCSI" controller. I used one, and do remember that when making the cable there were a lot of the 50 pins not used, and I don't mean just the grounds either!

No. I was using a Disto 4-in-1. Worked beautifully.
Courage isn't required... some technical information, and the need to have a 
working system is all that's necessary.
I can't see why the LR-Tech shouldn't work. The Disto is a pretty simple 
SCSI interface.
