QAccess SCSI Card w/AIC-6360 chip

: : I have an QAccess Fast SCSI II Card with an Adaptec AIC-6360 chip on it
: : (which I've never heard of)  Anyhow the card works (it's running my NEC 4x
: : CD-Rom drive and a Seagate 1.2gig harddrive ... and works great!!!)  
: : Anyhow I've recently purchase Using Linux Special Edition and it came
: : with Linux on CD-Rom...I created my boot and root disks (boot disk was
: : the scsinet one and root was the color144 one)  I boot up and it attempts
: : to locate my scsi card but keeps timing out until it gives up!?  Is there
: : a patch or upgrade that would fix this...or maybe a procedure to get
: : Linux to recognize my card....

: I've the same Problem with an Adaptec 1515 Controller, with the same
: AIC chip. At bootup the kernel detect the controller at the right
: adresses, but then the kernel-driver looks for connected Devices
: at every SCSI-target, but nothing is detected . The messages at bootup
: looks like:

: ------------- this repeat for every SCSI-ID --------------------------------
: my kernel: scsi: aborting command due to timeout : pid 3, scsi0, id3, lun 0
:            Test Unit Ready 00 00 00 00 00
: my kernel: aha152x: abort(); SCpnt=0x00204eb0; QUEUE STATUS:
: my kernel: issue_SC:
: my kernel: 0x00204eb0: target=3 ; lun=0; cmnd=(Test Unit Ready 00 00 00 00 00
: my kernel: ); residual=256; buffers=0; phase | not issued|; next=0x00000000
: my kernel: current_SC
: my kernel: none
: my kernel: disconnected_SC
: my kernel: waitin SCSISEQ ( );SCSISIG (DATA OUT );INSTAT ( hi );
:            SELID (a0); SSTAT2 (SEMPTY); SFCNT (0); FCNT (0); DMACNTRL0 (16BIT
:            PIOREAD INTEN);
: my kernel: enabled interrupts (ENBUSFREE)
: -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

: Does anybody know, what this mean and what I have to do, that the kernel
: detect my SCSI hardware? (Yes, i`ve read the SCSI-HOWTO (;-) and the
: Controller works with DOS)

: thanks for your help

1. Adaptec AIC-6360 for SCSI NEC CD-ROM via Soundblaster CT1770 card

I used the same hardware and Linux distribution on my first Linux box
and had good success, so read on!

When you are prompted for boot parameters in the initial setup, enter
the following substituting the correct values for IOPORT, IRQ and

Possible IOPORT values: 0x140, 0x340 (default)
Possible IRQ values: 9, 10, 11 (default), 12
Possible SCSI-ID: 7 (default)
Disconect SCSI Devices: 1

My boot parameters were:

During the LILO configuration setup, you will prompted to enter any
additional parameters.  Re-enter the parameters you used during the
initial setup.  These will then get entered in /etc/lilo.conf.

Good luck.  If you have any problems, e-mail me.
