SCSI subsystem documentation
============================

The Linux Documentation Project (LDP) maintains a document describing
the SCSI subsystem in the Linux kernel (lk) 2.4 series. See:
http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/SCSI-2.4-HOWTO . The LDP has single
and multiple page HTML renderings as well as postscript and pdf.
It can also be found at:

Notes on using modules in the SCSI subsystem

different ways depending upon the needs of the end user. To understand
your options, we should first define a few terms.

support. Without it you can do nothing with any of the other scsi drivers.
The scsi core support can be a module (scsi_mod.o), or it can be built into

will enforce the correct ordering of loading and unloading modules in
the SCSI subsystem.

+The individual upper and lower level drivers can be loaded in any order
once the scsi core is present in the kernel (either compiled in or loaded
as a module). The disk driver (sd_mod.o), cdrom driver (sr_mod.o),

and then unload it once you have no further need for the driver (and release
the associated memory).

The lower level drivers are the ones that support the individual cards that
are supported for the hardware platform that you are running under. Those
individual cards are often called Host Bus Adapters (HBAs). For example the
-aic7xxx.o driver is used to control all recent SCSI controller cards from
-Adaptec. Almost all lower level drivers can be built either as modules or
