We have just purchased a 2 Gig Scsi drive for our linux box. We
currently have 2 x 1 gig drive on adaptec aha-2940 scsi-cards running
The problem is that we have >1 Gig scsi support enabled on the adapter.
The new drive is detected fine on bootup. I run fdisk /dev/sdc to
create the lunix partition ok. When I begin to create the filesystem,
It just crashes and the next time I boot up I get a warning come up at
the scsi-bios giving me the following warning:
A drive larger than 1Gb has been detected with 64 head / 32 sector
partitioning. ... blah blah
I read somewhere I need to disable the >1 Gig options in the bios for
linux on these type of adaptec cards - any advice ??
Thanks in Advance
