IN-2000 SCSI DRIVER..help!

Post by Rene Angel Sepulve » Thu, 22 Jul 1993 03:23:15



Hello again :-)

        Someone just borrow me a PC 486 (20Mb RAM, 66Mhz) and a SCSI DISK.(1.2Gb)
        I would like LINUX in it.. but when I boot it from a1 disk..LINUX doesn't recognize
        my SCSI DISK.. the controller is a "IN-2000".. Where can I find a driver for it?
        (or maybe I must write my own driver?..:-( )

thanks in advance..

Don't take this too badly.   But.....  I have so far been unsuccessful in
getting the IN-2000 Driver to work (it is only alpha)
You can FTP it from tsx-11.mit.edu in /pub/linux/ALPHA/scsi.  The file
in2000.txt is it.

Best of luck!  :->

Let me know if you have any luck!!  Please!

this is my experience with linux and the in2000 scsi adaptor:

there is a (alpha) version of the driver. i tried and it really
does work! from Shaun Savage (thanks to you here again) i got the
necessary infos:

you can anonymous ftp a boot image from ucs.orst.edu:/tmp/incoming.

you will need to get SLS a1 disk as a root.

from dos rawrite the boot image on one disk and the SLS a1 disk to another disk
boot off the zImage disk and when it ask for the rootinsert the a1 disk
Now you should have access to your in2000 SCSI drives.

---------------- end include ---------------------

there was one problem: the zImage disk with the in2000 kernel asks for
the standard a1 disk to mount as root. so no way to get the harddisk
mounted as root. with a 5 1/4 and a 3 1/2 floppy it was not possible
to change the root drive on the zImage boot disk. (i boot with the 5 1/4
in drive A:)

this was the trick: go to system setup and make both floppies 5 1/4 inch.
format a 3 1/2 floppy as 1.2 mb disk. rawwrite the zImage to this disk
and with linux running make "rdev /dev/fd1h1200 /dev/sda?". (sda? is
your root-partition on disk). return to dos and make a diskcopy b: a:
now you have the in2000 kernel mounting your harddisk as root partition.
(do  it after! you have installed the system).

don't forget to change your setup back to 3 1/2 floppy.

if your boot disk is 3 1/2 inch, maybe you have to do some more work.

if there is a better way let me know.

1. IN-2000 SCSI Driver

Since it's been a while since I've seen this asked, I'll
ask:
      Is the IN-2000 SCSI Driver ready?
      How soon?

Thanks,
