Ok, I picked up the drives. I downloaded the new(er) HDtoolbox, when I run it this is what it says.... "Compaq ST32171w 0940 unsupported" and all the buttons are grayed out.
If I use the 3.1 install disk it usually locks up when scanning for drives, but once it got to the partitioning stage and I think it was asking me to enter data like # of cylinders, size , sectors etc. It seemed to think I had a 20meg hard disk. Is there any other software I can use that might support it? Also I'm using a 2091 rev. 6.6 card that is working with a Quantum drive (40meg), would it make difference if I used a GVP, ICD or Fastlane card?

I tried the GVP faaastprep program. Unfortunatly all it says is "Can't open GVPSCSI.device", the file is in the Expansion drawer.
