	Jamie,

	I remember trying to help you with that problem when you asked about it.

	As far as the EISA version of RAID Controllers, I'm not sure that there are
(or ever have been) any drivers for any of them.  I had to go to Solaris 7
to find drivers for my Mylex EISA RAID controller, and you weren't able to
get that Compaq EISA controller working.
