Compaq SCSI Controller (NCR 53c710) is not recognized?

Post by Arthur O L Bucion » Tue, 23 Jun 1998 04:00:00

I am trying to install an Compaq Prosignia VS (496 DX2 66) and it has no
IDE controller...
only a SCSI controller with an HD 2GB and a CDROM.  The system BIOS
recognizes the
controller as Compaq proprietary, the system board has a chip from NCR
and the model
is 53c710. I think NCR is supported by Linux but Linux setup won't find
the controller...
Is there anything I can do about it, like boot arguments?  IO address is
0x8000, irq is 10.
I appreciate any help! Thanks in advance
