yes you can

Hi,

yes you can have 3 disk in your system, all you need is a free scsi adres.
those adresses run from 0 upto 7, 7 is mostly the adres of the scsi adaptor so there a 7 (0 - 6) free adresses for scsi devices like disks and tape drives.

1 After you selected a free scsi adres
when you do not know whith adresses are free you
can run the `probe-scsi-all` command on the
OK-prompt.

2 you can set this adress on the back of your device.

3 shutdown and power-off your system.

4 connect your new device in the scsi chain, do not forget the
terminator.

5 turn on the power of your system and all the devices and go to
the OK-prompt

6 on the OK-prompt you can check your scsi configuration, again
with the `probe-scsi-all` command.

7 when your confuration is OK, boot your system with the -r
option; type `boot -r` on the OK-prompt.
your system is booting up an re-scanning your system
for new devices, and also creates the device files in
the /dev/... directories.

8 know your disk is ready to use.

use;
`format` to create disk partions,
`newfs` to create filessyems on the partions.
