Re: Grub and SCSI



As far as I know, AVA series is not a bootable SCSI card. Often it's being used to
attach SCSI peripheral such as scanner, ZIP or other non-bootable device. So, if U
try it, it won;t work.

Not just Linux but other O/S will not boot if U use this SCSI controller. (Correct
me if I'm wrong)

Try getting AHA-series .....
