Well, yes. But a more likely scenario is:
I have a newer system with either an Adaptec (PCI, EISA, VLB or
ISA), a Symbios PCI, a Qlogic, or Advansys or BusLogic PCI. I
don't have a scanner or a SCSI network. I can just run CAM.
I don't have the above. I need to run the older framework. Or, I
have a piece of the above, but I have something not supporeted in
the CAM framework as well and I need to run both. I guess I'll
just use the older framework.
Really the only person who cannot be satisfied by this is the person who
has an HBA not supported by the older framework (Adaptec 7890, e.g.)
*and* needs to have a target driver not in CAM or needs to also run an HBA
not in CAM. Perhaps this is a set with more than one element.
