Absolutely you can run SCSI.  If you just want to add an extra hard drive or tape drive, you can use any low-cost SCSI card.  You don't need one with a BIOS because you don't need to boot from it.  Something like an Adaptec 1510 would do well.  If you need to boot from a SCSI drive, you need one with a boot BIOS.  An Adaptec 1520 would be useful.  IF you have a PCI machine, an Adaptec 2940 is a good value.

A SCSI hard drive or CDROM will have:

1) A 50 or 68 pin connector for the data cable
2) A dip-switch or jumpers to set the SCSI address from 0-7

You also can check the manufacturers part number and see their specs.
