Re: Adaptec 7896 & 7890

I use a onboard 7890 right now.  I have scsiII, ultrawide SE devices, and U2W LVD
stuff all together with no problem.  I think the one thing you want to check if you
plan to mmix like that is whether or not you have the aic-38** maybe 36... Anyways
its a small chip that works with the 7890 that basically allows everything to play
nice.  I think it interfaces the SE stuff to the LVD 7890.  But as for that
harddrive, it should work fine, just make sure you have an LVD terminator and plug it
into the right port.
