Knoppix boot CD does not detect SCSI controller in Compaq Proliant ML-370

Hello All,

KNOPPIX_V3.8.1-2005-04-08-EN boots fine and seems to work well on my Compaq Proliant ML-370 (G1) with the exception of the fact that it does not detect the onboard Ultra2 SCSI controller.

I'm a newbie at the whole Linux thing, but have spent hours searching the net for simple to follow instructions on how to supply the required driver (module?) via floppy on boot. Unfortunately I can't seem to find which module is required and how to create it.

If one of the gurus out there could shed some light on this mystery I would be most grateful.

Thanks in advance!

If you press F2 or F3 when booting, you get a list of possible options you can use during bootup. Try things like:

knoppix noapic noapm scsi

etc, or have a look at download site of knoppix, the file knoppix-cheatcodes.txt will give you more such options to try during bootup.

Many thanks for the reply rindi.

Unfortunately it still didn't work and I didn't come up with a solution for it, but was able to work around my problem without using Knoppix after all.  I did learn a lot more about Linux during my search for an answer though, so it wasn't a total waste of time!


No problem, and thanks, too.
