The 9780 Miniscribe is a 15Mhz drive.  You will need to replace the controller
unless it is a 2322B-8 or 2322B-16.  The label on the controller will
indicate this.  Although, if you can wait a little longer (a month or so) the
2322D will be in distribution and that will run up to 20Mhz drives, but also
has 64K of cache on the controller.  Cost is about the same as the 2322B-16.
