Problem for install SCO 5.0.4 with two controller SCSI

the first controller ( SCSI2 LVD 7890) : - harddisk
the second controller ( SCSI Ultra Wide 7860) :         - cdrom
                                                 - tape
the driver for first controller is blad325
the driver for second controller is alad

i get the driver blad325 at www.adaptec.com and the initialisation of
harddisk it OK but problem with the cdrom (driver alad).

i select the cdrom with Srom=alad(0,5,0) at the boot
i select the device of the cdrom and i have a error message when the OS
testing the cdrom for the install.
the message :

Error initializing acces to device /tmp/cdrom
there may be a bios setup problem
or other hardware configuration error on that device

and the OS quit to press any key to reboot

If the CD-Rom is on controller 2 then there should be a 1 in
Srom=alad(1,5,0)  (or was it Srom=alad(0,5,1) ?)
to indicate that it is on Controller 2 and ID=5

 
 
 

1. HELP, Adaptec AIC 7890 on new DELL Poweredge 2300 Server

I just brought and DELL Poweredge 2300 Server, it comes with two SCSI
Adaptec cards, one AIC 7890 with a 9Gb Hard Drive and one AIC 7860 with
a NEC CDROM and Archive Python tape backup. At install, the AIC 7890 is
not recognized although the AIC 7860 is working, loading the RedHat V.
5.0 but when I invoke the Druid utility to create the Hard Disk
Partitions, I receive a No Drive Found message. Where I can get the
driver for the Adaptec AIC 7890 and how I patch it with my Linux Ver.
5.0 OS?
