Yes, but if the configuration isn't standard, the autoprobing will fail;
the addresses probed by default are 0x330 and 0x334 _only_.
To yhe original poster: you need to pass the parameters to the driver,
either in lilo.conf if the driver is compiled in the kernel, or when you
do modprobe aha1542. Quote from /usr/src/linux/drivers/scsi/aha1542.c:
* LILO/Module params:
* Where: <PORTBASE> is any of the valid AHA addresses:
* 0x130, 0x134, 0x230, 0x234, 0x330, 0x334
* <BUSON> is the time (in microsecs) that AHA spends on the AT-bus
* when transferring data. 1542A power-on default is 11us,
* valid values are in range: 2..15 (decimal)
* <BUSOFF> is the time that AHA spends OFF THE BUS after while
* it is transferring data (not to monopolize the bus).
* Power-on default is 4us, valid range: 1..64 microseconds.
* <DMASPEED> Default is jumper selected (1542A: on the J1),
* but experimenter can alter it with this.
* Valid values: 5, 6, 7, 8, 10 (MB/s)
* Factory default is 5 MB/s.
