SubjectRe: Help with promise sx6000 card
Hi!

To make a SX6000 card work with Linux:

1) Make sure the card BIOS is enabled.
2) In the BIOS of the card, set it to "Other OS', not Linux
3) Disable support for Promise cards in Linux
4) Enable I2O and I2O block devices
5) Make new kernel & reboot
6) With luck, it'll work. Anyway, SX6000's are DAMN SLOW.

I succeeded last time I tried.

Now to get a SX4000 working, that's a much more interesting task ...
