Description Tony Brack 1999-12-24 06:16:24 UTC
I am not able to find a boot disk anywhere that properly detects an
Adaptec 1520B - ISA Fast SCSI adapter. Ancient Adaptec DOS Drivers see it
O.K. Notes in all the driver databases I've seen, seem to indicate that
this "was intended" for support as of version 4.2, but I can find not
further annotations.

Linux will only detect a subset of these cards. Use expert mode to tell it about
