I have Linux Mandrake Version 6.1. I have added a Future Domain Scsi Controler and a Tandberg Data TDC 3500 Tape drive to my system. I added the modprobe scsi_hostadapter fdomain statement to my rc.local file. When my system starts the PC sees the scsi card and drive. And when Linux loads it loads the module. I can see the system hit the tape drive. Info scroll across my screen while it tries to load the fdomain module. Linux see the correct IO address and IRQ. But I get the following error. scsi: aborting command do to timeout pid 3, scsi 0, channel 0, id 4, lun 0, Testunit Ready. This error seems to up date several time and the pid part of the error updates to the number 7.
I hope I have given you enough info to go on. Thanks for any support you can give.
