Re: Kernel SCSI for Adaptec 1505

A "new Adaptec 1505 scsi card"? Well, this card could hardly be new. Anyway! This card
is incapable of auto-detect. You *must* supply kernel (or module if you're loading as
a module) options to tell the driver what IO, IRQ, etc. you want to use. For instance,
in my /etc/lilo.conf file I've got:

  append = "aha152x=0x340,9,7,1,1,0,100,1"

This is because mine's compiled into the kernel. If I were loading as a module then
I'd have a file /etc/modutils/aha152x and inside this file:

options aha152x aha152x=0x340,11,7,1,1,0,100,1

This works just dandy for me.
