I'm to take a look at this tomorrow Monday and Wednesday, too. I'll also
ask at the local LUG. At least one person has reported problems with a 2940
(kernel boots, loads SCSI drivers, hangs), and I have seen _LOTS_ of trouble
with on-board 788x's (/me thinks all 788x's are on-board adapters). I know
RH's latest install floppies work with these cards.
Pointers, please. Where do I get patches from? Is really enough to replace
`linux' on the rescue floppy or do I have to replace something else? Any set
of boot parameters I should try (I know override_term solved some of the
problems I had before, and so did stpwlev)?
