<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>I have a couple questions regarding Fiber Channel
support in the 2.2.14 kernel.&nbsp; I've been given the task of connecting our
Linux servers to our SAN, based on an HP XP256 array.</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>After working my way through the kernel, it appears
I have two choices, either a QLogic ISP2X00, or an Interphase 5526.</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>My first choise is to use the QLogic.&nbsp; QLogic
FC does not seem to identify it's WWI correctly, and you need to actually look
at the FC switch to determine what it is.</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>Diving deeper into the Interphase shows that SMP
support is buggy at best.</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>Are there an other Linux FC solutions availible at
this time?&nbsp; </FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>Thanks,</FONT></DIV>
