I have just installed a new Pentium 166 using the Intel Aurora (32 bit)
motherboard, 64MB RAM, DPT 2124 Fast Wide SCSI Host Adapter with 16MB
cache, 2 Digi PC/Xe Boards and have also installed TCP/IP newest version
just bought. OS is SCO Unix 3.2v4.2, disks = 2GB, 1GB & 2GB, all SCSI.
Everything seems to work fine except for doscp. Tar has no problem,
Microlite has no problem, to/from either floppy or tape, just doscp.
The problem is: When coping files to/from the 3.5" floppy drive using
doscp the system hangs. Not every time, just most times. I can make it
hang by using doscp and while it is copying, pressing Alt-F2 or switching
to any other screen. It also seems to hang when other people use the
system while the doscp is in operation.
I have tried not using the floppy controller built into the motherboard
by adding an ISA floppy controller (IDE card with all except floppy
disabled), but it did the same thing.
Any suggestions would be of a great help.
Thanks in advance for the help.
