I reported in an earlier bug report (#17897) that I could not get my
internal SCSI zip drive
to work correctly with my Adaptec Ultra-SCSI card using kernel 2.2.16-3. I
therefore went
back to using kernel 2.2.14-5.0 (the default on my v6.2 installation
CD-ROM), and updated
the aic7xxx.o driver to version 5.1.31 which I downloaded from 


This seems to fix the zip drive problem. However, I find when I have left
my machine for long 
enough that the monitor power-down kicks in that when I log back in the
time has been reset
to 5 hours earlier. Curiously, if I telnet in from another machine this
problem does not arise, it only seems to arise if I log in on the console
(either in X-windows or terminal mode), but as soon as I log in on the
terminal the time does reset, even if I am logged in via a telnet session.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
