I've looked, but can't find much on this topic...
installed suse 7.1 via ftp on a PowerComputing PowerTower
Sonnet Cresendo G3 upgrade card (195Mhz Linux/300Mhz MacOS)
Sonnet Tempo Ultra ATA 66 PCI card with an ATA drive attached (Seagate
Barracuda 18 Gig)
Internal SCSI drive 2Gig (Quantum Fireball)
Internal SCSI CDROM reader
Internal ZIP100MB also on internal SCSI bus
IMS TwinTurbo 4Mb video card
installation was successful, but the only drive that's mountable is the
internal SCSI drive. this is the drive with Linux.
the MacOS is installed on the ATA drive. I've partitioned the ATA drive with
pdisk and know that it is partitioned to my satisfaction. the mac os has
about 600Mb partition, the rest is supposed to be the /home and some swap
space. in order to get pdisk to see the drive --> /dev/scsi1.2 had to be
specified. i guess that the PCI card is an IDE/SCSI bridge; so its on a
separate bus from the internal one.
The MacOS boots fine from the ATA drive.
I can't mount the ATA drive in Linux. lspci --vv sees the PCI card. by all
accounts, I should be able to mount the drive.
has anyone had a similar problem? any suggestions would be appreciated.
