Conner CTMS 3200 + Adaptec 1522A now working!

A couple of months ago I posted a message stating that I kept
getting hard lockups with my Conner CTMS 3200 SCSI tape drive attached
to an Adaptec 1522A controller.  I'm happy to report that I've figured
out what the problem was:  the parameters I was passing to the Adaptec
driver in the Linux kernel were not quite correct.  The key was to turn
off the controller's synchronous negotiation, i.e. to put


instead of


in the image portion of /etc/lilo.conf.  I made my first successful tape
backup last night and I am able to sleep more easily now!
