I think that I know what you are looking for. It appears that you are looking for the adapter card betwen the mother board and a sister board or just the sister board itself. The only companies that I am familiar with that still use a mother/sister board setup is HP and Dell. Some old Gateways used this setup. I suggest that you hit the HP site, make a guess on an older P system and hit the parts catalog. Radio Shack sold a system about 6 years ago that used this type. They have an extensive parts catalog with images of each part. Hope this helps.

Remember these on the old IBM's ....and HP's... would suggest you check out www.computersurplusoutlet.com ...or other similar surplus/refurb places.

Couple of things to keep in mind..
1.
what is the case for your current chassis? that will dictate whether or not you can add a "Riser" Board (that's what they were called).... and whether after you've added the board, you can seat and access whatever boards you're trying to install.
2.
if it's a DOS/Windows machine, you're not going to run out of IRQ's after adding these new cards, are you? there is a limit to the hardware you can add to a DOS/Windows system!

We have a 2 slot pci and pci/isa combo riser card now. We need atleast 2 - pci slots and one isa for a propietary application. That is why I need to expand the chassis, or find a 3 slot riser. Also the riser can't be more than 3.5" in height including the blade.
