Have one of these myself.
Am using SuSE linux, and am using the aha152x kernel module.
Installed the card and have the following line in my lilo.conf
which works great.. Experiment with the 9 as this is the IRQ. I think the
default is 10, but check and see. The 0x140 is the IO address, the only
other option is 0x340. The 7 is the host ID number, and is usually ok to
leave at 7. The 1,1 are usual also.
To give it a go make sure you've compiled the scsi kernel module, and the
where <ver> is your kernel version.
make sure you have a file aha152x.o
the use modprobe to load the module, i.e. modprobe aha152x
the proof of the pudding is in loading the zip drive...
Make a dir to mount the drive to and then mount a zip disk as, mount -t vfat
/dev/sda4 /zip, where /dev/sda4 is when you have the SCSI ID to 5 on the zip
drive and /dev/sda5 is when you have it set to 6.
Hope that helps
