I think I remember Mike ( mentioning that 2.x firmware
on the Mylex is not a lot of fun. Forgot any details though. I once checked
with Mylex and found out you need a specific minimum hardware rev before
you can go to 3.x firmware. If that is only the second flash rom I don't
know. I have given up on the DAC960s I had and sold them ;)
