Charles etal....

I just thought I'd drop a public line to let everyone know that the
AIC6360 driver probes SCSI drives correctly with an Adaptec 1522A

That is the only thing that it does right, however.

I have just spent the better part of all my off time getting back after
the driver corrupted the root dir on my wd0a drive.

The symptoms are that whenver an attempt to access one of the SCSI
devices on the aic bus is made, the system wedges tight.  There is no
responce from anything.  If you try and read anything from the drives,
the root partition inode table gets hosed so bad that fsck will not fix

Of course, this could all be a coincidence, since the only way to
recover from trying to access one of the drives was a hard reset.  My
sources are current as of Saturday.  Charles should be able to test the
driver shortly (like by Priority Mail this morning).

Good luck and happy hunting.
