Dear FreeBSD people,

I am hoping to get FreeBSD working with an Adaptec 1542CP SCSI card, but
it doesn't seem to be working, and I've now been informed that FreeBSD
2.1.5 does not support the 5142CP, but that later fixes may address this
issue. Could you provide some guidance please?

On a related matter, I also can't get my Mitsumi LU002 to work either, as
it times out too much. BTW, both cards work fine with Linux, so the
hardware end should be fine.

Thanks in advance,

Erik Pearson
