I have unsucessfully attempted to get 3 distributions to recognize the AIX-7901A SCSI Controller built-in to the motherboard on the Dell Precision 670.
Windows XP also doesn't recognize this card on a default installation. You need to load the drivers from a floppy on installation.
The source code to the drivers are available from Adaptec's website. How does one go about creating a boot disk containing these drivers in the kernel? Adaptec lists their SCSI Driver Source Code for Linux Kernel Versions 2.6
but I wouldn't know how to go about doing anything with this. Is this something we leave to the Linux 2.6 Development team?
