Tyan, likewise, supports booting from SCSI in newer versions of the BIOS.
At least for S1563D, it does. Since you do not specify what board you
have, I hope I am not misleading you.
However, IFF your version of the board and Award BIOS will NOT boot SCSI
(again, I suggest you check before doing the appended), you can swap
the Award BIOS for MR-BIOS which _does_ allow such tricks (among other
things, it also allows you to have four floppies, eight IDE drives, RAID-0
and RAID-1 from BIOS and other weird things). I am NOT fond of MR-BIOS for
quite a few reasons (a Chabad prayer embedded in the strings being a very
significant one :-), but it WILL provide a solution.
