All scsi 1 and scsi 2 devices should allow 8 max devices on the chain. The controller itself counts as one device, so you can have connected to the Oktagon another 7 devices on the scsi chain, harddrives or cd-roms etc
Completely useless? I can always be used as a bad example  :lol:

That I want to see. I never had any drive on an Oktagon reach more then 2,x MB/s. If you mean the theoretical maximum throughput of a ZII card in general you are correct.
Not really interesting, but it`s there.

I couldn't burn faster than 1x  on Oktagon using '060 and IDE HDD (A4000) because of buffer underrun :-x
Better sorry than worry.

No, the max is 3.54 MB/s, in practice 2+ MB as some cycles go to housekeeping.
