I have an EIDE hard drive (WD) on a Promise VLB 2300+ VLB EIDE controller
card. The BIOS on this card is enabled to get LBA mode for the hard drive
(the 486 motherboard doesn't support LBA natively).
I am also running a SCSI CD-ROM (Sony CDU55S) off of an Always IN-2000
SCSI controller card (latest firmware), with the BIOS disabled as it
conflicts with the Promise 2300+ BIOS.
When I tried to copy the bootimage for this combination from the RedHat
3.0.3 distribution, it complained that it couldn't handle the IN-2000 with
BIOS disabled, followed by a message saying "Sorry, giving up".
Is there some way to build the kernel to work with the IN-2000 with BIOS
disabled, or should I just try to find a cheap ATAPI CD-ROM and move the
SCSI devices to another box? I know some "C", but little Linux or UNIX.
