AIC-6360 SCSI problems with Slackware

AIC-6360 SCSI problems with Slackware

Post by Go Pack attac » Fri, 28 Mar 1997 04:00:00

I'm attempting to install Slackware 3.0 on my machine.  It is a Compaq
Presario 833CDS with most of the original hardware (if that means anything
to anyone who might be able to help me).  Basically my problem is this.  It
has in it one of teh SB16 SCSI cards with the AIC-6360 driver chip (made by
Adaptec) to run the CD-ROM which is SCSI.  The hard drive I'm installing to
is IDE.  I have yet to be able to mount the CD-ROM with any of the drivers
that come with the bootdisk options.  I did come across some information in
a HOWTO file that talks about changing the BIOS to recognize the hardware
on bootup, but I don't really have a clue how to do that.  If anyone has
had a similar problem or just flat out knows how to fix mine, I'd
appreciate hearing about it!

1. Adaptec SCSI AIC-6360 And Linux Slackware

Ah, it's nice to be among those who are having problems installing Linux.

I have a 486/66 w/ 24mb ram an ide hd of 540mb and a scsi 1.2gb drive

I have an adaptec AIC-6360 cpontroller for it, it resides on my
motherboard (I own a zeos computer).  

I booted up the bootkern and root144m, and it
went to find the hard drives, it found my ide drive, hda1 and hda2
(i have boot manager running), but it didn't find the scsi drive

when my system boots up I see:

AIC 6360 Bios 1.01L
Target to: Maxtor 1240s  Instaleld as drive D:

so I know it's getting installed. In my bios, i have all my SCSI things
set correctly, as it works FINE from dos.  

Has anyone got any ideas? if so, PLEASE mail me

or post a reply here, i'll find it either place <:

Thanks all!!
