At a local computer show, I saw a few vendors offering the BusTogic
FlashPoint LT PCI SCSI card. This is the new BusLogic PCI SCSI card - it
supports UltraSCSI & is supposed to be is SCAM Level-1 and PCI
2.1-compliant. The price was ~$160.
Has anyone tried this card? I was unsure if this card would work with
Linux (& if so, what kernel version, drivers, tricks, etc). The latest
SCSI FAQ I found only mentions the 946s. This is not too surprising since
the FlashPoint was released in late Oct of 1995. BusLogic has DOS/Win 3.1
& OS/2 Warp drivers for the FlashPoint (which are the other 2 OSes I have
on my machine).
BTW, I have an Intel Zappa motherbd (P90) with AMI BIOS. I currently have
kernel 1.1.90 (which I expect will not support this card :-), I would be
using this card to replace the SCSI i/f on my PAS 16 sound card. I'm also
considering one of the NCR/Symbios 8xx cards.
Any info or pointers will be appreciated. E-mail replies are preferred
