tlug: FWD to SCSI-2

I've been trying to use IBM 4.3Gb Fast Ultra's (SCSI-2 type, but I 
think they get called SCSI-3) on different equipment.  So far 
everything has been fine (Linux PC's, Sun Sparc 2/5/20's, and the 
HP 9000 Single-Ended SCSI bus) except when I tried to hook them up to 
the HP 9000 Fast Wide Differential (68 pin) bus.   Then they don't get
recognized properly even with a recommended connector.  Does anyone 
know how to hook up to FWD?
