There are 2 DOS programs for 154x/174x adaptors available: one is called
SCSI.EXE and one is called SCSICNTL.EXE. I got both from uunet a year or
so ago from a directory named pub/vendors/adaptec if i recall it correctly.

SCSI.EXE lets you diagnose, scan and remap blocks, SCSICNTL.EXE lets you
edit the mode pages and (re-)format a disk drive.
