I have a Toshiba Satellite 110CS notebook and an Adaptec APA-358 (not 348) parallel to SCSI adapter (plus an external SCSI CDROM).  I have tried the 2.5 notebook supplement but it doesn't recognise the APA-358.  Can I install 2.5 with this setup bearing in mind that I do not have network access to a Solaris machine (although I do to a Linux box and an NT server box - both with CDROMs)?
