This says you have *two* adaptec scsi controllers in your system.
When you boot, does the Adaptec BIOS tell you anything? (You should
see something like, `Hit ^A for SCSIselect' then output of a scan of
what devices are on your SCSI bus, before Linux gets to boot).
What does dmesg tell you?
I'm afraid it's been a *very* long time since I've used a 2.4 system,
so there's limited info I can give you.
A mate picked up the standard kernel had the aic module in it. Duh.
When I kicked this system up, I finally got a backup tape that wasn't
So I checked the rc.local and found dpt_i2o then I remembered 4 years
ago building this thing and that took me ages to find. How the hell
you're supposed to know the aic7xxx module finds the card, but you need
the dpt_i2o module to see it as a raid I cann't remember what I did 4
years ago, or if I hadn't access to my original rc.local what I would
have done to find it agin.
Thanks for the help.
