Linux bootdisk/kernel that works with the Asus P2B-S?
Posted on 1998-08-29
I bought the Slackware 3.5 distribution recently only to find that neither the 2x4x nor the scsi bootdisks seem to be able to find my SCSI hard drive on my system. My motherboard is an Asus P2B-S, with an onboard (built-in) SCSI controller (AIC-7890, I think). Setup's fdisk always complains about "cannot find /dev/sda". I'm guessing that it isn't finding or recognizing my SCSI controller.
If this is the case, then I'd like to know:
1. Where can I get a bootdisk that does recognize such a controller (so that I can at least install Linux on my system, for starters :)
2. Where can I get the kernel source that has this support available (so that I can recompile it for support with other devices, in addition to the SCSI controller).
