Booting with CD.
Starting in expert.
The SCSI card in seen because the lights of CD & CDR works.
But nothing else...
On the harware page the SCSI card is known but in reallity...
Same bug with Adaptec 2940UW
I have installed RedHat 7.0 with these devices
Intel VC820 Motherboard with BIOS VC82010A.86A.0036.P16SCSI Adapter
Adaptec 2940U/UW (BIOS 2.57.2) (SCSI ID 7)
at Bus:02h Device:09h / IRQ: 9 / IO Port: D800h
Western Digital Vantage 9.1Gb U2W SCSI (SCSI ID 0)
Saegate 4.5Gb UW SCSI (SCSI ID 1)
UltraPlextor CD-ROM (SCSI ID 2)
Yamaha 4260 CD ReWriter (SCSI ID 5)
Iomega ZIP SCSI (SCSI ID 6)
Video Diamond Viper 770 OEM 16MB
Network 3Com 3C509B
When I connect only UltraWide hard disks, the system works fine. But if I add
UltraPlextor, Yamaha, Iomega (All connected with 58 pin cable), the system
stops for 5 seconds every 2 minutes or less.
So I had to install & use linux without those devices using 58 pin cable.
The Windows 98 SE works good with & without those 58 pin devices mentioned
I mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org for several times, but he doesn't even answer!!!
Suprised he didn't - magicdev didnt get on with some drives/controller combinations
