>Last time I checked (3 months ago), Ultra2 Wide SCSI was
PowerEdge with Adaptec AIC-7890s and AIC-7860 (CD-ROM card) with a view to
installing Linux (and unfortunately NT!) and Oracle - I'll be a bit gutted
if Linux can't install on it.
Both RedHat 5.2 and Slackware 3.6 completely hang the machine when trying to
detect it; I can't even turn the machine off using the power button!
I've checked on the Adaptec web site and they don't have any info on Linux -
only SCO I think.
