Hi all,

over here we are using an MVME2604 CPU-board, running OS9, with a SCSI-disk. This is working allright.
Now we want to find out whether Linux is working, so I downloaded bootfull.bin from Debian, the woody one, and it doesn't recognize the SCSI-disk
Below is the output, generated by the boot-process.

Here is a part of the output from OS9, concerning the harddisk:

Now trying to Scan SCSI devices.

Does anybody have a clue why Linux doesn't recognize my harddisk?

Thanks in advance.
