I could not install onto my DAC960 controller, because I needed the
patch to the DAC960 kernel driver to recognize the DEC custom firmware.
I ended up taking one of the drives off the DAC960 controller and
connecting it directly to the onboard SCSI controller, and installing
onto that.  Once the system was installed, I could compile my own kernel
and make use of the drives connected to the DAC960.
