I want to install a zip zoom scsi accelerator card in my linux box. I have only JUST setup the box, 2 weeks ago, as a secondary DNS for my local network. It is running RH7.0 server, and I have got everything running correctly (as far as I know). The question I have is after physically installing the HW what do I do? Does linux have PNP? Will I need to find linux drivers for it? If so how do I install them? Can I get them in RPM format, or will they be tar'ed? Will I need to recompile the kernel? Would it be easier to reinstall from scratch, run up2date, and reconfigure DNS (I've now done it 3 times in a one week period)?
I know alot of these questions are vague and general, but I have just finally started to "play" with linux/unix (getting tired of rebooting regularly) and don't really know where to go w/ this one.
Thanx in advance for ANY info,
INS aka Henry
