Many thanks to Darren Dunham  and Jon Polak for taking the time to 
reply. Jon had the answer, in that the terminator I had was for 
single-ended scsi, but the D1000 requires a terminator designed for 
differential. Now that I have a terminator for differential scsi, the 
netra and D1000 are happily working together.
