Check SCSI IDs (SCSI card also has its own ID) and termination.
Check every device in SCSI chain: termination should be on both
sides (most SCSI card has terminator control through DIPs/jumpers)

Yeah, in one chain should not be two SCSI devices with the same SCSI ID
number (usually from 0-7).

The problem is in the ibm bios, the ps2 had a 320 mg scsi hd that failed. I need to get the system partion on the new drive. this is why im getting the I99900XX error

Hmm, so I assume you can't boot ? In this case, take out failed HD and leave new one,
prepare bootable floppy on friend's computer and repartition/reformat new HD (or maybe
I don't completely understand what situation you are in ?).
