I finnally solved my SCSI problems and got it working...
since I posted here I thought I would share how I did it.
This was soooo stupid...
I went into the main BIOS just for "Shits and Giggles"
and noticed a "Plug N Pray" area (i forget the actual name)
where it lists all of the IRQs and has a value fo reach
mine were all set the same...
I set IRQ 10 (the one I was using) to Legacy ISA and it worked!
none of my other ISA cards have a problem with it...this one
in any case it works...and I think I just sucessfully performed
a backup onto tape
I just did "tar cf /dev/st0 /"
I got errors when it got to /proc but other than that it worked
next time I will exclude /proc (and /tmp now that I think of it
and a few others... like /var/run ..hmmm...maybe others
when i think of them)
in any case..it seems to have worked
now...anyone else been using tape drives for backups?
any good backup systems/scripts to share? :)
im open to suggestions (I only have 2 tapes but...they are 4 gig
(uncompressed) each...and my hard drive is only 3.2 gig
any suggestions? :)
