I am trying to upgrade from an Adaptec 7850 (OEM) SCSI controller to a
2940au in anticipation of moving to 'Ultra SCSI' drives. First, I
installed the latest (?) drivers from Adaptec (alad325 v1.3/d1.8). The
old card worked fine. With the new card installed, I get a kernel panic
The motherboard is a 'Super' with on board support for the 7850 card.
Could this be conflicting with the 2940au? Does this card normally work?
I have installed several of the original 2940's with no problem but this
version is no longer available.
P.S. I suspect this may have been addressed in previous posts. Is there
an archive of this newsgroup with a search engine?
Thanks for any ideas, Larry Owens
