Difference between Personality Modules

Does anyone know what is the difference between the DS-BA35X-DA and DS-BA35X-FA Personality modules (or any of the others out there, for that matter), and is there any compatibility issues with an XP work station.

If I remember correctly, the -DA is HVD while the -FA is SE.

That would explain why it isn't working. Thanks! Do you know anything about the DA-35X-FB? Can 2 shelfs be daisy chained with that module? It seems to be called a 2 channel.

Correct, the DS-BA35X-FB is a dual-channel I/O module. Works together with the BA35X-MF self termination module, which sticks into the back of the box and replaces the "jumper module".

I know it's possible to chain two single-bus boxes via some 'address magic' and turning off termination on the I/O module. You need external 'tri-link' connectors (H8861-AA).

Can't tell for the dual-bus one, sorry.
