Hi, have anyone run the computer with adaptec 29160 SCSI card with
2.4.21 kernel? I can't mount my reiserfs partition with this kernel.

... shouldnt be an issue - this card is 'certified'. i think you
might have another problem at hand. what makes you think you cant
mount some partition? you havent provided enough details.

I can't provide any detail, as I can't mount the /usr and /var which
is reiserfs. May be I attach the config file of kernel here, will it
help?

Sure, lots. Use a different driver if you have trouble (I get them
direct from the authors site, and tehre shoudl be an "old" driver in
the kernel source too).

Sure you can.

No. Just show the kernel error messages, cat /proc/scsi/* and so on.
