If its like my scanner (umax 610s) then you could get a PCI SCSI controller card to replace the ISA SCSI controller card.

Actually the only reason it wouldn't work is because the PCI and ISA slots use different sections of the system memory. Otherwise, I'm sure it would be possible to make an adapter because they do have similar pinouts.

My old Compaq Presario CDS 520 (486DX2 66Mhz) uses a PCI slot on the board and a converter. PCI to 2 ISA slots

You sure thats a PCI slot? Or is it one of those longer brown riser card ports, and then the riser card has some ISA slots on it? I have a ISA riser card which will allow for 3 ISA cards to be installed in one ISA slot onboard (riser card from old PB Legend), and a friend has a riser card in his Compaq Cyrix-225 that changes the single PCI to two PCI slots. I have also had riser cards with a few PCI and a few ISA that have a longer brown connector for the board. Kind of interesting if that really is a PCI to ISA converter. If one was talented enough with memory and IO mapping, I'm sure an ISA to PCI converter would be very easy to manipulate.

I dont like that motherboard, besides its a socket a and ive got a p3 now. I will most likely just get a pci controller card for my scanner or if there is an adaptor i will find one. Thanks anyhow
