Has a boot image for (preferably) Redhat 5.0 or 5.1 been created to recognize this controller? I have tried several distributions, Redhat (boot image for 2.0.35)Caldera, Debian 2.0, Slackware. System will go until it's time to find the hard drive and then nothing.

Try a bootimage with a 2.0.33 kernel. The AIC7xxx driver in 2.0.34+ is a bit broken.

No go either, been there, done that, even 2.0.35 isn't good yet.

I have this running using the boot option "aha152x=0x140" (without quotes of course).  For some reason, the autoprobe fails in this I/O range.
