I have absolutely zero experience with setting up SCSI devices and even
less experience loading an O/S on SCSI but I got a great deal that I
couldn't pass up. Can anybody tell me how to physicall set up the SCSI
devices. (I am assuming the SCSI ID thing is like slave master etc... on
IDE)? and what special steps do I need to take to install Red Hat Linux
6.0? (Then upgrade to 6.1, the only way I have figured out to get Red
Hat 6.1 to talk nice to Windows). Here is the specs for the machine and
consider that it is just a pile of parts now.

I can figure out the bios setting on the board to boot to SCSI and all,
but how to I set the SCSI ID? What is the SCSI id exactly? Is there
anything special about installing from SCSI on Red Hat 6.0? Since I have
devices on the two different ports on the controller how should I set
Like I said I know very little about SCSI.
