I am planning to do a motherboard upgrade and was wondering
about hardware limitations in the upcoming 1.1 release. Will the
AIC7XXX driver support the Adaptec AHA-2842 VL-Bus SCSI card?
Are mice attached to the aux. PS/2 port PROPERLY supported as I noticed
some caution statements in the pmc.c file. If I have a machine with
64MB RAM will I encounter the ISA/DMA bounce buffer problem? Will the
problem affect PCI DMA Bus Mastering products? What about VL-Bus?
Probably will affect all ISA Bus mastering products, right?
It seems absolutely TERRIBLE that bounce buffer support
won't make it into 1.1. It really needs to be there.
