I cant get my Linux setup to recognize my AHA2920, what is the specific driver for this card if you know? It has the Future Domain chipset but it is an Adaptec card?
Thanks,
Spanky

When you Compile the kernel, be it with Module support or built in support for your AHA, you won't find it in the list of low-level drivers under AHA, it will actually be under "Future Domain 16xx"  This is at least the case with a Kernel as high as 2.1.51, and try this also for 2.0.xx versions.
I must ask, which Kernel version of Linux do you have? and what distribution is it, Red Hat, Slakware...?

When you install from scratch, which I assume you are doing, you should choose one of the following boot disks (by the way which do you use, 1.44Mb or 1.2Mb drive?
fdomain.s  or something similar  If you haven't already tried, maybe you should try the generic scsi.s
these files will be in the bootdisks1.2 and bootdisks1.44 directories.
 But you will have to recompile the kernel when you have set Linux up anyway, so you will then have to re-compile with the support of the scsi drive I have mentioned above.
