>Hi, has anyone gotten Linux to recognise a Data Technology DTCxxxx
DTC 3290 and 3292 boards, which are Adaptec 1540 compatable, work fine.
DTC 3270, 3280, and other boards aren't supported and won't be supported
until DTC changes their company policy about giving out programming
information. Right now, you need an NDA which says that all information
you get from them is propriety, so source code can't get published.
Even if that weren't the case, they want all drivers to be public domain
(so the GPL doesn't work), and want the author to provide support through
their bulletin board although the support item on the NDA is hazy and

Your host adapter is unsupported, and probably won't be any time soon.
Either forget about Linux and go with a commercial System V unix
which supports the DTC BTLD driver or buy a different, supported
SCSI board or an IDE setup.
Right now, I really like the Bustek boards - they're adaptec 1540
compatable (unlike the new Adaptec boards) so they have great
software support, the driver is quite stable on them, and they're
more affordable than genuine Adaptecs.
