    SCSI drive

    For clarity's sake, don't use "<ip address of hostname>" use the ACTUAL 32-bit numeric IP address of the machine.

    50 pin allows 8 bit transfers a 68 pin allows 16 bit.

    Adaptec 29160 works very well and has internal connections for both 50 & 68 pin drives.

    What about 80 pin drives? Aren't those the latest and greatest?

    80 pin drives combine both data, power, and ID selection in one connection; they are made for hot-swap applications where they plug into a backplane. Their performance level is no different than a 68 pin SCSI drive. Which you use depends on how you wish to connect to your system.
