How do I get linux to see my SCSI card? Im running redhat 4.0 kernel 2.0.18. Initially the SCSI worked well because I performed a full install from CD. Then when the machine re-booted, it no longer sees my SCSI host or cdrom. I have an adaptec 1505 and had to type in the argument aha152x=0x340,9,7,1 initially. I can go to the control panel using X and use the kernel daemon configuration and it displays my adapter and arguments there. But it still doesnt see the  scsi host at boot. Once the adapter is recognized will it see the CD-ROM(s) ? Thanks for the help!

You may need to add an option to /etc/lilo.conf to force the SCSI to be recognised at bootup.  Try adding the above argument to lilo.conf somewhere at the top:

append="aha152x=0x340,9,7,1"

then rerun lilo:

# /sbin/lilo

reboot and see if that fixes it.
