+ ---help---
+ The iSCSI Driver provides a host with the ability to access storage
+ through an IP network. The driver uses the iSCSI protocol to transport
+ SCSI requests and responses over a TCP/IP network between the host
+ (the "initiator") and "targets". Architecturally, the iSCSI driver
+ combines with the host's TCP/IP stack, network drivers, and Network
+ Interface Card (NIC) to provide the same functions as a SCSI or a
+ Fibre Channel (FC) adapter driver with a Host Bus Adapter (HBA).
+ To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the
+ module will be called iscsi_tcp.
+ The userspace component needed to initialize the driver, documentation,
+ and sample configuration files can be found here:
