If the rsync method fails, I have a motley collection of older stuff that
includes a number of SCSI and other adaptors. Let me know if you want to
poke around in this stuff.

JL:If I were trying to get the data off, I would probably try rsync. There
JL:is a DOS version supposedly available here:
JL:You can run the rsync client on the WfW 3.11 machine, and an rsync
JL:server on a linux box or a Windows box running DeltaCopy.
JL:rsync is nice since it will do delta copies. If the transfer fails in
JL:the middle, it can pick up from where it left off.
