>>> Compaq SCSI controller

Post by Yin Tan Cu » Mon, 08 Feb 1999 04:00:00

I just got a Compaq machine which has an embedded SCSI adapter. The full
name is

        compaq integrated 32-bit Fast-SCSI-2 controller.

I tried to install Linux but during the installation, the SCSI card
didn't get pick up. This system uses NT before, and in the NT
configuration, the SCSI adapter gets listed as

        NCR 53c710 SCSI host adapter.

In the installation of Linux, I choose the NCR53c7xx driver to try to
detect the SCSI card, but it was unsuccessful.

I tried to compile a kernel in another Linux machine with SCSI
support(not as module), and I included NCR 53C7xx support, but it did
not work. the error is like:

        VFS: can not mount root.

but the scsi detection is before this, and none gets detected.

Can someone tell me how can I get this SCSI card/CD-Rom to work?
There are 3 SCSI disks attached to this SCSI card.

Thank you.



I have a 10 GB UDMA IDE drive formatted with Windows.  The first partition
is FAT32, and the second is NTFS.  I can successfully mount the first, but
not the second.  Any ideas?

Suse 7.2 on i86
the drive is mounted on /dev/hdc, and I CAN see hda1, but not hda2
