I've tried to change my SCSI chain : originally, it was
internal Quantum 1080_S (ID 6)
external Syquest SCSI 1 (ID 1)
external CDROM SCSI 2 (ID 0)
Leaving my hard drive alone, the kernel boots, but shows targets from 0 to 5 as being a Quantum 1080_S (nice prize ;-) ), except id 6 that is the real hard drive.
If I add the CDROM, the controller hangs.
I haven't tried another config.
What should I try then ?
