Users of Adaptec 2940 SCSI cards, and other SCSI controllers with
the aic7xxx chipset, will probably experience problems with the
standard boot-floppies. A kind user has made some experiments
which many users find to solve their problems. There are two
alternative Rescue Floppies for the i386 architecture at
ftp://kalle.csb.ki.se/pub/. There are also replacement kernels in
that location, which you can use to simply replace the existing
kernels on the boot-floppies. You'll need the Drivers Floppy from
the standard location.
A competing and newer set of Rescue and Driver Floppies for
Adaptec users can be found at
I had to use one of those images from for my 2940.
