Re: [PLUG] Adaptec 3805 w/ CentOS


Have you tried booting it with a Knoppix disk?  Knoppix handles most hardware 
situations quite well and once it's up and running you can see if Knoppix 
correctly handles your adaptec card.  Then, examine the drivers that got loaded 
to see how Knoppix did it!

Where are you located?  I could possibly help in person this afternoon if you're 
not too far away (I'm in Swarthmore, Delaware county.)
