Didn't get an answer in Linux - Hardware, so I thought you folks might know whats up
Tried searching for an answer to this, but couldn't find anything.
I have a PowerEdge 2200 with a PERC 2/DC controlling 2 4gb HDs, and this Sony SDT-9000 DDS-3 tape drive running on the internal Adaptec 7880 SCSI controller. I was able to load Slack 10 by booting to to the raid.s module on the cd, and loading the adaptec.s module by floppy before the actual install. The server does not have the adaptec.s module loaded at boot, so I have to load an aic7xxx after every boot to at least see the SCSI cdrom and the tape drive. Here is what I get after the loading of the module using insmod:
(scsi1) <Adaptec AIC-7880 Ultra SCSI host adapter> found at PCI 0/15/0
(scsi1) Wide Channel, SCSI ID=7, 16/225 SCBs

I tried using this as /dev/st0 and /dev/tape with no luck.
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!
