New hardware---PCI modem, G450; Adaptec 19160, etc.
I have been granted the parts to build four machines for a
GNU/linux network in my classroom at Marianas High School. One of
the machine is built up from rather up-to-date parts, and I'm
having/anticipating some trouble getting it all to work together.
I am installing Debian stable for now. This list has been helpful
in the past, so I am trying here first. I posted when I was
planning this network, at least two years ago. It is now an
3Com/USR 2977 PCI modem.
I would like to hear from anyone who has one of these running
under Debian. On the Inet is found a page describing installation
on Mandrake/RedHat boxes. Precious little is found in a google or
altavista search on setting this modem up on a GNU/Linux system.
Will this card even run XFree86 3.X (Debian "2.2" on the CD)? I
need to get it together, then upgrade. So far, the screen locks
up. Where can I find good reading on this?
Is the Matrox driver the way to go?
Adaptec 19160 SCSI adapter
Is there something I should know?
I can install Debian, but cannot boot the system from the SCSI
Are there some parameters for this?
Thanks for any help
