Has anyone installed a machine using the Tekram PCI SCSI card with SCSI
disks? I have the Slackware 3.0 distribution CD and have read through all
the read me's, how to's, and any other data I can find, include watching
this group for the last week. I am also trying to get hold of the Usenet
archive, to see if there has been any previous reference, but I would
appreciate any help on this I can get now.
I tried all possible SCSI boot images of the CD, but none work.
I read about being able to give boot parameters to the kernel specifying
details like the SCSI driver signature (found at c8000). Or perhaps it is
worth pursuing the fact that it uses the AMD chip (NT recognises this chip
and installs an AMD driver which works fine)? If I try installing it as an
AMD SCSI device maybe I will get somewhere, but I have not found device
provided for on the CD?
Are either of the paths above worth pursuing, if so what is the best way
forward? or have I missed the point completely, and is there something else
which can help?
