Having installed the kernel 2.6.8 sources and docs from the 9.2 CDs,
I've tried giving parameters to the sym53c8xx module during the 9.2
installation when linuxrc asks for such parameters. Specifically,
I've tried to give these:
mpar:n spar:n verb:2 debug:0x200
as discussed in section 10.2 of
/usr/src/linux-2.6.8-24/Documentation/scsi/sym53c8xx_2.txt.

I've tried the form above, as well as mpar=n spar=n... and both forms
give the message:
sym53c8xx: Unknown parameter `mpar'
in /var/log/boot.msg.

How can I give the scsi driver some parameters?

TIA,

Jim
