Pro Audio Spectrum 16 Installation Problems
Posted on 1998-06-15
I'm having a problem getting RedHat 5.0 to install on my computer with a Pro Audio Spectrum 16 card with a
SCSI CDROM (Sony CDU561-...). The drive works fine in DOS, but when I try to install RH5, it tends to freeze my computer after I tell it to autoprobe the system with the PAS16 SCSI CDROM module. Note that there are no jumpers to choose the base address of the SCSI port or the IRQ that it should use on the card itself. The Trantor driver for DOS says that the SCSI base address is 388h, but it doesn't mention an IRQ (does it use one?). Basically I'd like some advice as to how to get RH to install without freezing after it supposedly detects the CDROM. It sounds like some kind of conflict to me, but... conflicting with what? All I have in the machine is a video card, PAS16 card, and a 1 port IDE interface card for the HD.
