All the drivers I used were included with the Slackware distribution for Linux
2.0.0 (from Walnut Creek or Infomagic)    All I had to do was to select the
boot image aha2x4x.s from the installation cdrom and write it with rawrite onto
the "boot floppy".   The root floppy I used was the text.gz, which I
uncompresssed and rawrote to the "root floppy".  It recognized the adaptec card
and the two devices I had  daysi-chained to it (a hard drive and a tape drive)

The file you found contains the drivers for this card.  However, I suspect you
probably want to install Linux onto your SCSI disk  so you need this to be
recognized upon bootup.  I think that you DO  HAVE to use a bootimage that
contains the aha2x4x driver (there might be other ways Im not aware of)

Before you spend too much time on this (as I did)  I sugesst you install from a
Slackware (or Red-Hat or whatever) distribution that contains  a bootable image
for this card



1. Not Available these Signal nos on Linux


The following macros are there on AIX  but not on Linux.If we have
on Linux pls  suggest me how to use(say path) or tell me alternative?

#define SIGDANGER 33    /* system crash imminent; free up some page
space */
#define SIGSAK    63    /* secure attention key */
#define SIGSOUND  62    /* sound control has completed */
#define SIGKAP    60    /* keep alive poll from native keyboard */
#define SIGGRANT  SIGKAP /* monitor mode granted */
#define SIGRETRACT 61   /* monitor mode should be relinguished */
#define  F_CLOSEM       10/**on AIX /usr/include/fcntl.h****/
#define _D_NAME_MAX 255
