Solaris 2.5 with adaptec 2940/2940u

I install solaris fine, but when it reboots it comes up with on error.
like it does not see the adaptec 2940 pci scsi. It works fine with a ncr
scsi and 1515 adaptec scsi. I have downloaded the latest drivers from
sunsoft. Still no luck. Please help urgently.


1. Solaris 2.5 w/ Adaptec 2940

I'm having a problem loading Solaris 2.5 on a Pentium 90 PC.  The hardware
details are as follows:

        Intel Zappa motherboard
        Adaptec 2940 host adapter
        32MB memory
        Toshiba CDROM XM-3701TA
        Exabyte 8505XL tape drive
        Fujitsu M1606S-512 disk drive
        Diamond Stealth graphics card

I have tried the various Driver Update diskettes, but always get the following
error message after I use the second floppy and select the CDROM to boot
from.  I get the error message after I get to the secondary boot and select
interactive (or custom):

        Booting kernel/unix...
        SunOS Release 5.5 ...

        (Can't load the root filesystem)
        Type any key to continue

Hopefully this is an easy answer for someone.  Please send an email response
if possible.  Thanks!
