As it turns out, the 8-port units have their cables, but the 32-port units 
do not.  They use external "bases" with the multiple ports (standard 
25-pin D-shell connectors) which I have, but the cables that go from the 
cards to the bases are missing (so far).  They have a standard 25-pin 
connector on one end, and a slightly unusual 25-pin connector with 3 rows 
of pins on the other.  I don't have the pin-out, but I'm sure it is 

Anyway, I just thought anyone interested should know.
