Hello,

I've just installed Suse Linux 8.2 on a Mylex 960PL. Everything works
fine so far :) but I have a problem with a HP DAT24 Streamer and a
Toshiba SCSI CD ROM, both of them attached on Channel 1 (the RAID Disk
Array is on Channel 0). They are both recognized by the driver (see the
log below) but I can't mount them since I don't know to which device
they belong .. neither /dev/(n)st0 nor /dev/scd0 is working. I've tried
to find any hints on google (both web and groups) but I couldn't find
anything useful. Can anybody please help me with this issue? Do I Need
to buy a separate SCSI Controller because the driver doesn't support
single SCSI Drives? Thanks for your answer!
