Note necessarily. Many scanners have auto termination built into 
their twin connectors (inside the box). Which allows you to simply 
connect the cable and leave the other SCSI connector "open". I think 
most devices have built in termination so that the hap hazard users 
won't blow their SCSI cards, or motherboards (in the case of Apple). 
Either this, or they gave you a terminator, which was a small 50 pin 
plug-in device that had two L.E.D.s on it. In any event, you don't 
want to leave a SCSI bus unterminated. Ever.
