I have this PC configuration since 2002. The initio driver worked
perfectly with 2.4 kernel series.
With the release of 2.6 kernel series the driver had been marked as
BROKEN and fixed at 2.6.9
(see at http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/linux/kernel/482582?search_string=SCSI%20updates%20for%202.6.9;#482582
Christoph Hellwig ->don't mark the initio 9100 driver broken)
