I have several that are 6' in length.  the length that is electrically
critical is the total lenght of any daisy chain from controller to the last
device no matter how many devices are in the daisy chain.  The total length
is around 15'-18' for the SCSI I version of SCSI and 22'-25' for the newer
wider versions of SCSI (i.e., SCSI III); but these specs sort of depend on
the quality of the cable and the type of SCSI card.

I've had no trouble at all getting Advansys PCI SCSI cards to work with
Mandrake (7 & 8), they just get detected and sort themselves out. Which is
just as well, given my thin Linux know-how. I'd suspect a firewire
converter is asking for trouble, though,  unless you know drivers exist. So
also is a long SCSI cable. I've never seen one >~2' and I believe length
is electrically critical.
