Greetings, folks. Any input you might have is much appreciated.
Here's my situation:
486DX266 w/VLB, 16M memory, 250MB IDE drive, Genoa SVGA (on the VLB),
and a Pro Audio Spectrum 16 soundcard (with a SCSI controller built-in).
I just ordered Solaris2.1, and will need to purchase a CD-ROM drive
to install it. I looked through the current HW compatibility list,
and Sun says they've only tested ISA SCSI controllers. Since I've got
a slot free on my Vesa local bus, I'd prefer to pick up a VLB SCSI
controller. Another alternative would be to try to load the OS
via the (untested) SCSI controller on my soundcard...
So, my questions are:
Does anyone know if Solaris will support a VLB SCSI controller?
If so, which ones?
Does anyone know if I can use the SCSI controller on my soundcard
to (at least) load the software from the Solaris CDs?
Got any other ideas?
