Sorry, should have made it a bit clearer. I have:

Alpha (with QLogicISP (Wide SCSI)) -> Wide to narrow adapter -> disc
1 -> ... -> disc 4 -> tape drive

Not sure about the high byte termination - I've noticed that I can set
the Qlogic adapter to provide high byte termination though - would
that do the same?
