I'm sure that's true, but what can I do about it?

Do you mean the driver that comes with the kernel - 2.6.12 in my case?
Or do you mean the SCSI BIOS?
The BIOS version seems to be
[tim at alfred log]$ grep -i aic dmesg
scsi0 : Adaptec AIC7XXX EISA/VLB/PCI SCSI HBA DRIVER, Rev 6.2.36
<Adaptec aic7890/91 Ultra2 SCSI adapter>
aic7890/91: Ultra2 Wide Channel A, SCSI Id=7, 32/253 SCBs
As far as I can see, the code version
(from /usr/src/linux-2.6.12/drivers/scsi/aic7xxx/ ) is
#define AIC7XXX_DRIVER_VERSION "6.2.36"

I'll see if I can find an old serial cable -
not quite sure how to set up the serial reception on the other computer.
Any other suggestions ...
