Yeah, I forgot to mention the little number display with the up/down 
selector buttons -- that's what made me think it was a SCSI interface.  
Actually, it looks like I could put in another drive (there's a second 
data connection on the PC board) if I wanted to.

This would supply the 12/5v for the drive. And, of course, the little rectangle between the power switch and the top SCSI-1 connector is the SCSI ID switch with buttons top (touch up) and bottom (touch down). Except for the power connector that one looks like the one I (used to) have at home ... before one of my sons got SCSI happy(!).
