Umm...I'm sure David got the SCSI stuff going....infact let's look back in my
Outgoing mailbox....Yup, here we go:

  WD93:Driver version 1.21 compiled on Jul 11 1996 at 07:19:23
  wd33c93-0: chip-WD22c93B microcode=0d
  scsi0 : SGI WD93
  scsi : 1 host
  Started kswapd v 1.2

    Type:   Direct-Access                      ANSI SCSI revision: 02

  Detected scsi disk sda at scsi0, channel 0, id 2, lun 0
  scsi : detected 2 SCSI disks total
  SCSI device sda: hdwr sector= 512 bytes. Sectors= 2070235 [1010 MB] [1.0 GB]
  SCSI device sdb: hdwr sector= 512 bytes. Sectors= 1070496 [522 MB] [0.5 GB]
  Partition check:
   sda: sda1 sda2 sda3 sda4
   sdb: sdb1 sdb2 sdb3 sdb4
  Sending BOOTP.....

It was a little slow the first time, but he fixed that.  It understands SGI
partition tables.

Cheers, Alistair
