After booting from 3.8.5X CD it does not see my SCSI drives.

Viewing dmesg does not turn up the SCSI drives.

The SCSI adapter is Adaptec AIC-7880 & AIC-7890.

I have tried this with some other Linux versions and it work OK.


After P.C. boots up type in: pciprobe

Look at output for references to the SCSI drives with /dev names
like sda and sdb and partition names like sda1, sdb1, sdb2, sdb3, etc.

Then to mount an NTFS partition on drive SDA partition 1 type in:

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt

Then you can see the directories on SDA1 by typing in: ls /mnt

Don't forget when done to unmount the drive. Type in: umount /mnt

To mount a FAT-32 partition on drive SDB partition 2 type in:

mount /dev/sdb3 /mnt

FAT-32 (Windows) and EXT2 (Linux) type partitions don't require
any special options with the mount command.
