Tak,

The terminator does NOT determine whether the system is SE or LVDS.
That is determined by all devices on the bus.  Only one non LVDS
capable device is needed to push people into SE mode.  Obviously we
will NOT be buying terminators that cannot do both LVDS and SE for
our drives (big hint to terminator manufacturers everywhere),
since that would defeat the purpose of the SE/LVDS in the drive.
