A boot/install floppy image that actually has the AHA2 driver on it for
Adaptec 15xx series SCSI controllers?
(Unlike the Patch A release which would recognize my SCSI controller but
bomb out with a FILE NOT FOUND.)
Next Q. Does the Patch B release not require the PC to have a PCI bus?
My laptop is a Pentium 75 with no
PCI stuff at all.
If all three of the above aren’t true then there is no point in my
downloading it for the third time
and burning a CD because it still isn’t going to install on my laptop…
unless NOW someone will spill
the beans on how to make custom boot/install floppies. (You can dig
back a ways on the groups on this
server for my (and other’s) questions about this that got either no
answer at all or no useful answers.)
If not all of the SCSI drivers can be fit onto one floppy how about
including several images, each with
a subset of the drivers? Slackware Linux comes with tons of boot/install
disk images. Time spent on that
would be time saved answering lots of questions about problems with the
single boot/install disk image.
Unless its like my experience with four different Linux distros, none of
which can detect my SCSI
controller at all BUT do have the correct driver on the boot/install
disk! The QNX disk says “Oh look!
You have a SCSI controller that needs the AHA2 driver. Oops! I can’t
find the AHA2 driver on the floppy.
Too bad, so sad.”
