Micropolis HD + Slackware 1.3.20

The boot messages indicate that the kernel recognizes a
Micropolis drive. Accept the line that reads "SCSI: CDROM NEC detected total" instead reads "SCSI: detected total" for
a system without the CDROM and with the Micropolis drive. The same trantor SCSI card works 100% with a NEC cdrom. I believe this to be a problem with the Micropolis jumper settings and have tried various combinations.

First of all you have to check that the disk works by itself, so try booting the system with only the hard disk attached to your SCSI card. Look at the messages and keep a record in case of problems.

   If it works and is recognized properly the yiou have to focus in cables and terminators. If you are familiar with SCSI jargon then just be sure you have only two terminators in the chain, if both devices are external then one terminator has to be in the last device and othe in the controller itself. If you have one internal and one external then the terminators have to be in the devices and depending on how your card works, it could be necessary to remove termination in the card resettin jumpers, switches or removing the terminator itself (check manual).

  Check also every detail about your devices and controller, for example it could be that one device can't accept synchronous or asynchronous communication so you could have to fix the other two accordingly. Check parity. Check everything.
