1. Slackware 2.0 Mitsumi CD-ROM & Adaptec SCSI controllers

 Hi all,

  This maybe an old issue but I just bought the Walnut Creek Toolkit for
  Linux 2 CD-ROM distribution containing Slackware 2.0 Linux.   I have a
  486DX2/66 VLB system with an Adaptec 1540 2 SCSI drives and a Mitsumi
  2x CD-ROM.  No IDE drives.   The package comes with a few kernels
  configured for different hardware configs.   I picked the SCSI/Mitsumi
  CD-ROM kernel.

  The problem I'm having is that no matter what the IRQ for the Mitsumi is
  set up as, the kernel want's it to be IRQ11.  The default (and only
  working IRQ) for the Adaptec is IRQ11.   If I set the Adaptec at a
  different IRQ than 11, the kernel reports the correct IRQ that I've
  set it to but hangs probing the SCSI bus.  When the kernel see's the
  Mitsumi board it assigns IRQ11 to it.   If the Adaptec is at 11, well
  you get the picture.   The only way to get the kernel to come up with
  the Adaptec and drives recognized is to remove the Mitsumi board (or
  change the base address which causes the kernel not to recognize the

  Is there any way to get this thing to come up with both units recognized
  and in a way that I can load linux off of the CD-ROM?
