I have a PC with ADAPTEC 2940U2W SCSI card.
I tryed to install RedHat LINIX 5.1 but the installer
neither gave me drivers for this card as a choice nor
the chance to supply it from let say diskette.
So I was not able to install RedHat LINUX 5.1.
For comparison, I was able to install Windows NT in spite
of the original NT CD-ROM does not have a driver for
this SCSI card. During installation when NT failed to
match predefined drivers it prompted for the vendor
The kernel shipped with 5.2 has improved support for Adaptec Cards. I
recommend upgrading to 5.2.
