I recently plugged a spare NCR58<something> SCSI card into my computer, to try
a used DAT drive I got my hands on (the DAT was broken, but that's another story).
This worked fine with both DOS and Linux (recompiled for NCR SCSI), but when
I removed the DAT, leaving only the card, Linux would no longer start.
It would start booting, but after detecting the SCSI card, it would generate
an endless stream of 'existing issue queue' messages. I finally had to
remove kernel support for the SCSI card. I would have liked to keep that
in so I can bring home a working DAT from work for the occasional backup,
without having to switch kernels.
Any hints or tips?
