Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Using Red Hat 4 AS with kernal version 2.6.9-42.0.3.ELsmp
Attempting to install a IBM Ultrium 3 LTO tape drive only device attached to an Adaptec 29320 ALP scsi card as scsi ID5. SCSI bios shows the device as present during post on the IBM xSeries 346. Currently the card is installed in the PCI-X slot 4. This system has IBM's ServeRaid-7k installed on motherboard which is up and working correctly. But as far as I can tell the Adaptec card is not showing up as a active device in linux.
Hardware Browser is showing a scsi device Adaptec ASC-29320ALP U320
Last night I reinstalled RH4 AS on the box and then downloaded and installed the drivers for the Adaptec 29320 SCSI card and once again the device is showing up in the hardware browser but not listed in the /proc/scsi/scsi file (would expect to see a scsi1 entery) Is there some configuration I am missing?
Needed to manually load the drive by using the modprobe aic79xx command (after uploading to the newist version of MakeDEV, pciutils and kudzu) Then edited the /etc/modprobe.conf file to include the alias scsi_hostadapter aic79xx so that the device was avalible after any future reboots of the system. (ended up not using the adaptec device drivers located on their website but the ones included in the kernal load of red hat).
