I recently installed the Infomagic 3 CD version of the Slackware
distribution. My hardware configuration is as follows:
Gateway 2000 486DX/33
IDE hard disk
Soundblaster audio card
CD-ROM connected to Soundblaster interface
SCSI controller card connected to SCSI hard disk
I am using the 1.1.59 version of the kernel with SCSI and
soundblaster CD support included.
I can mount the cdrom ok, but when the system boots up, the
SCSI drive is not dectected. (it doesn't appear to even
look for it - at least no diagnostic messages appear telling
me that no SCSI devices can be found).
I checked the SCSI-HOWTO, but this specific controller was not
mentioned. Does any one have any experience with it? Is it
compatible with one of the controllers listed in the HOWTO. Do
I need a different version of the kernel? Do I need to specify
some parameters on the LILO command line?
The controller has worked ok on dos/MSwindows using the drivers
supplied from the manufacturer. I'd rather not have to replace the
controller unless I have to. I guess I could just keep dos stuff on
my scsi drive, but I would eventually like to get other scsi devices,
such as a tape drive, which would be very useful with Linux also.
Any help will be greatly appreciated - Thanks in advance!
