Adding a SCSI card

I'm a newbie. I have a question if anyone can help. I am needing to add
a SCSI card into a Solaris 7 box. What procedure should I go through in
order to do this? I tried some manuals but have not found my answer.
Thanks,

Well, it you are going to use an Adaptec 2940UW/OF card you
will only be able to use the 32-bit kernel because the 64-bit
drivers are NOT going to be provided by Adaptec...or anyone.
A better choice may be the Symbios SYM8751SPE which
has native drivers in Solaris 7.

1. Adding a SCSI drive to BusLogic SCSI card causes timeouts

Greetings.

I'm trying to add another scsi drive to one of our machines.

Currently, we have the following:
- A 4 plug (5 if you count the controller) scsi cable.
- The two plugs farthest from the controller are used.
- The drive closer to the controller is a Quantum Empire drive.
- The drive farther away from the controller is a Seagate ST51080N.

I am trying to add a Seagate ST31200N drive.  I plug this drive in
front of the two current drives.

I boot up the computer.  It recognizes all three drives - id 0, id 4, and
the new drive id 6.

Then I start running a little stress test.  I run badblocks on each
partition of each drive.  The new drive works just fine.  My Quantum
also works fine.  But, my existing Seagate ST51080N reports the following
error:

scsi : aborting due to timeout : pid 11650, scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun
            0 0x08 09 a8 79 70 00
scsi0: Unable to Abort CCB #11650 to Target 0 - Abort Tag Not Supported
SCSI host 0 abort (pid 11650) timed out - resetting
SCSI bus is being reset for host 0 channel 0
scsi0: Resetting BusLogic BT-54xC due to Target 0
scsi0: *** BusLogic BT-54xC Initialized Successfully ***
scsi0: Tagged Queuing now active for Target 4
scsi0: Tagged Queuing now active for Target 0

Other version information....
        Kernel version is 2.0.29
        BusLogic SCSI Driver Version 2.0.6 of 1 December 1996
        BusLogic Firmware Version: 4.25J

Any ideas?
