5.0. <what?>

You're hosed on any release prior to 5.0.5. 5.0.5 has limited support,
5.0.6 has better.

SCSI zips work on any level of Openserver.

Word of caution: make sure there's a disk in the drive on booting up
SCO. Also make sure that the drive is NOT automounted on boot, and be
careful to not remove a disk with a mounted filesystem until you've done
a umount AND the drive light has gone off.

1. ATAPI Zip 250 drive on Asus K7V

I recently received a new PC with an Athlon 750 on an Asus K7V mboard.
After installing RH6.2 successfully, I moved the ATAPI Zip 250 drive
from
my PIII mboard to the K7V. In both cases, the Zip drive is the slave to
the
cdrom on the second ide port, and so is listed as /dev/hdd. Everything
worked
fine with the Zip drive on the PIII mboard, and when I installed the
drive on
the K7V, it is recognized correctly at bootup:

Sep 12 12:00:37 rigel kernel: hdd: IOMEGA ZIP 250 ATAPI Floppy, ATAPI
FLOPPY drive

However, most of the time whenever I try to mount a disk, I get the
following
errors reported:

Sep 12 12:07:32 rigel kernel: ide-floppy: hdd: I/O error, pc = 28, key
=  5, asc = 21, ascq =  0
Sep 12 12:07:32 rigel kernel: end_request: I/O error, dev 16:44 (hdd),
sector 0
Sep 12 12:07:32 rigel kernel: FAT bread failed
Sep 12 12:07:32 rigel kernel: hdd: The drive reports both 250609664 and
250624000 bytes as its capacity
Sep 12 12:07:32 rigel kernel:  hdd: hdd1 hdd2 hdd3 hdd4

I say mostly because I did find one 100mb disk that would mount. The
disks
that would not mount work fine on my other zip drive, and as soon as I
put the
drive back on the PIII mboard, all of these disks mount fine. So it
appears to
be a problem related to the K7V. Has anyone else successfully installed
this
drive on a K7V, and if so, were there any special modifications that
were needed?
