Nope , The linux DAC960 driver needs 3.51-0-04 for dual flash .
Or 2.73-0-00 for single flash . And beleive me Leonard means what
he put in the README.DAC960 file .
2.73 usability is new to me as when one of these dropped into my
hands all the driver supported was the Dual 3.51... firmware .
Using either of the above will work on Linux , BUT not alpha
vms/osf/nt .
The cost for the items from Mylex isn't reasonable imo . But if
you want it & have a flash burner , Get two just like on the card
now & download the firmware & burn it . Don't get the XDBA
version as IIRC the alpha boards don't support it . But do check
if MB you have does . Might get lucky .
