: Help.

: I have been using LINUX off and on for the last couple of years,
: but since I purchased a SCSI card, I find myself forced to use a
: boot disk instead of LILO.  I also have to go into the SCSI card's
: BIOS setup everytime I want to run a DOS session.  Is there any
: way or setup that can let me boot either from LILO on the HD instead
: of having to rely on my boot floppy?

I had the same problem when I used the 1542c for the first time. In the
end I chose default setting for all parameters for the 1542c and it works
fine for both dos and linux  ever since.

Hope the above help.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

To solve this problem set the I/O port address to 330h or 334h.
I find this out reading the source of the driver.

1. problem installing x86 2.5 with update 3 and Adaptec AHA-1542C

Dear all

I try to install X86 2.5 with drivers update 3 and
Adaptec AHA-1542C SCSI controller.

I have the following error message after I chose
interactive installation:

Configuring the /dev directory
hsfs mount failed, trying ufs......

Bad /usr
(This could be due to using /usr from a boot server.)

And it goes back to the prompt #

I think the problem is caused by the controller.
Anyone install it sucessfully with the same
controller?? Please help..

Many thanks
Jason
