This one is the 32 Bit version, isnt it? If I am right there at least must
exist a pincompatible version - exept for the pins which are n.c. at the
001 and used for 32bit stuff by the 002...

I know that atari has prepared some implementation for the 32bit one. But
I am not sure if there are hardware problems - but you can use 24bit mode
an put the other pins to ground. But thats a sad waste...
