I am trying to install Slackware v3.30 on a Compaq Prosignia VS.  It has a built in FAST SCSI board.
I have tried most of the scsi boot diskettes and they
all fail to see the scsi hard drive.  
Not even the boot disk scsi.s can see it.  The controller
and HD work fine under NT, OS/2, Win95.

I'm not shure about the Prosignia, but it may be the same as with the DeskPros: you must boot via DOS and loadlin :-(

If your SCSI chip (NCR 53C9??, not shure at the moment) also is responsible for the ether device, then you may loose.

If you need more help, you may contact me directly at hoagascht@gmx.net

I ended up putting in an ISA Adaptec 1542 controller.
Disabled the built in crap and everything works fine.

Thanks for the help.

That's the expensive workaround, I had had to do it too :-(
