After twenty (!) years (https://goo.gl/hzEKAE) I am proud to announce new version (1.22) of BusLogic Family SCSI Adapter Device Driver for NEXTSTEP Release 3.2, 3.3 and OPENSTEP/Mach 4.0 for Intel Processors.
This new version works with VMWare Fusion. See 'Changes' section below.

The driver is available from http://www.hukatronic.cz/drivers/ and the appropriate files are:
http://www.hukatronic.cz/drivers/BusLogicFamily.1.22.README
http://www.hukatronic.cz/drivers/BusLogicFamily.1.22.I.bd.tar.gz

Changes between version 1.20 and 1.22:
1. Driver now works with BT958 emulation from VMWare.
2. PCI support fixed.

Many thanks to Tomas for coming out of NeXTSTEP/OPENSTEP retirement to update the driver.


Under VMWare Fusion 8.1 my 19.2 GB image files can be mounted directly w/o conversion as monolithicFlat with the following vmx file under OPENSTEP 4.2.

Code:
File sdc.vmx
# Disk DescriptorFile
version=1
CID=fffffffe
parentCID=ffffffff
isNativeSnapshot="no"
createType="monolithicFlat"

# Extent description
RW 38914049 FLAT "sdc-flat.img" 0

# The Disk Data Base
#DDB

ddb.adapterType = "buslogic"
ddb.encoding = "UTF-8"
ddb.geometry.cylinders = "38605"
ddb.geometry.heads = "16"
ddb.geometry.sectors = "63"
ddb.longContentID = "46b1039bc5e8efb921fdde872a287910"
ddb.virtualHWVersion = "3"


I've added up to three SCSI emulated drives and over 15 disk partitions. IDE emulation is much more limited.
