Reading up on it, the SCSI2SD appears to now support internally
mapping ID 0 LUN 1 as ID 1, so that part might be OK.

One thing that's different about the D9060/D9090 vs "modern" machines,
is block size.  256 bytes per block, not 512.  Any new SCSI/SASI
device would have to support, at least in some fashion, the low-level
formatting routines (or at least respond in such a way that the ROM
header command would still work.  There's no need to really low-level
format, of course, so it's likely that just a "N0:DISKNAME" and not a
"N0:DISKNAME,ID" would work.  The block size still has to work, of
course and few modern devices deal with physical blocks under 512
bytes.  That might take some additional mods to SCSI2SD beyond the LUN
mapper fix.
