SubjectRe: DAC960 Driver - problem with DAC960PL

DAC960PL? yes, friend of mine did that, but not on an hp netserver. His
machine is an AT&T dual p166. He's using it with the original firmware of
2.39. We modified the DAC960.c so that it doesn't check firmware (no
problems tho) The only thing is that he's using kernel 2.4.17

I'm running both a DAC960PD and PDU (2 ch) in a DEC alpha. I boot from the
PD with a RAID0 and I have a RAID5 on the PDU with 6 disks. It's a screwy
configuration, but it works.
