The Apple G4 computer marked "For Fuji Picto Printer":
1) has no SCSI controller in it.
2) Somebody formatted the hard drive in it a few nights ago (I honestly 
don't know who) and installed Debian linux.
3) It's being used by the front door as a kiosk.

All that said, the fuji printer itself has a 50-pin pci scsi controller 
sitting on top of it.

I am moving the printer itself outside the darkroom.  There is a second 
Apple G4 computer that could take the pci scsi controller and be setup 
next to the printer on the reverse engineering tables.
