SCSI card

By hongwei ·
How can I get my Linux machine (mandrake helium) to detect my new plug-in SCSI card just like windows 98/2000 did?
Can Linux autodetect any new plug in internal card as well?

First you need to find out if youre card is supported by the Linux kernel (if youre using for instance an Adaptec SCSI card, the answer is probably yes). After that, if the card its not detected at boot time, you either need to recompile your kernel, upgrade to kernel version that supports it or download the driver/patch to supporting it, and compile the kernel.
This is not a very difficult task, but if you dont have any experience in doing it, perhaps its better you ask someone that allready had done it to help you.

The first answer looks good to me.

If you are still tackling this problem, perhaps you should consider calling your local super-hero.

Hope this helps.
