Description Leonid Kanter 2001-01-18 13:24:13 EST
Anaconda uses ncr53c8xx driver for all Symbios chips. But there is newer
driver, sym53c8xx, that performs much better. I even  know that module
ncr53c8xx doesn't work on some 895 and 896 chips. New driver, sym53c8xx,
supports all Symbios chips, except for 810.  So, ncr53c8xx should be used
only for 810 chip.

Will be fixed in kudzu-0.89.4-1 or so.
