    Users of Adaptec 2940 SCSI cards, and other SCSI controllers with
    the aic7xxx chipset, will probably experience problems with the
    standard boot-floppies.  A kind user has made some experiments
    which many users find to solve their problems.  There are two
    alternative Rescue Floppies for the i386 architecture at
    ftp://kalle.csb.ki.se/pub/.  There are also replacement kernels in
    that location, which you can use to simply replace the existing
    kernels on the boot-floppies.  You'll need the Drivers Floppy from
    the standard location. 

    A competing and newer set of Rescue and Driver Floppies for
    Adaptec users can be found at

I had to use one of those images from for my 2940.
