I tried to post a message about this once before, but it did not seem
to make it to the news group.
I have an AHA 1542CP scsi board that used to work on another machine
with a 1.2.13 that was part of a Slackware distribution. For it to
work I had to disable autoscanning and things like that, but I am
afraid that I cannot remember the exact settings.
But now when I try to disable the ``features'' that supposedly don't
work with Unix boxes, the system hangs after recognizing the board
with the message ``Waiting for SCSI ID #0''. This seems to happen
because I have to disable ``Dynamically Scan SCSI Bus for BIOS
When I don't disable that option (or when I disconnect the BIOS
altogether) the kernel that comes with RedHat 4.0, with the SCSI
driver built in as part of the kernel, hangs upon rebooting, saying
``Aborting due to time out ....'' or something like that.
There is no Interrupt conflict and no conflict between the IO ports
between this board and my Cabletron e2100 ethernet card. (Which was in
the old machine.) The e2100 is at D000 while the 1542 CP is at DC00,
and I understand that with those settings the e2100 will not use above
I am getting quite frustrated.
Does anyone have any clues as to what might be happening or know of any
