During installation of RH 5.1 SCSI autoprobe stalls. I am using an Adaptec 2940UW and IBM DCAS-34330 HD. CD-ROM is run off of IDE. Double checked termination that seems O.K.  SCO Unix is running fine. Using System Commander for multiple boot.

Try adding
      max_scsi_luns=1
at the boot prompt, after the image name.  If that works, add it to lilo.conf.

If you're using autotermination it may also be better to select the correct option in the BIOS, rather than leaving it as automatic.

At the boot prompt I have two options in the install script standard installation which does scsi  autoprobe or expert mode where I can set the scsi controller and load module?
