Thank you for your recommendation.
Only now I had the opportunity to test the system with the Feral driver.
However, my attempt failed miserably.
The driver was compiled as module under a 2.4.22 kernel and included into the
initrd image. On boot-up the driver appeared to load and recognize the disks
but the system hung subsequently with the error message
isp: NOT RESPONSE in RESPONSE QUEUE (type ...... which seems to be the error
messages for not responding ( notresp in isp.c )
Does anyone have an idea what the cause of that problem might be ?
