     aic — Adaptec AIC-6260 and AIC-6360 SCSI driver


     device aic

     In /boot/device.hints:"isa"


     The aic driver provides support for the Adaptec AIC-6260 and AIC-6360
     SCSI controller chips.  Many systems that use these controller chips do
     not have a boot ROM and therefore cannot be booted from.


     The adapters supported by the aic driver include:

     ·   Adaptec AHA-1505 (ISA)
     ·   Adaptec AHA-1510A, AHA-1510B (ISA)
     ·   Adaptec AHA-1520A, AHA-1520B (ISA)
     ·   Adaptec AHA-1522A, AHA-1522B (ISA)
     ·   Adaptec AHA-1535 (ISA)
     ·   Creative Labs SoundBlaster SCSI host adapter (ISA)
     ·   Adaptec AHA-1460, AHA-1460B, AHA-1460C, AHA-1460D (PC Card)
     ·   Adaptec AHA-1030B, AHA-1030P (PC98)
     ·   NEC PC-9801-100 (PC98)

     The driver does not work well with multiple devices on the SCSI bus.  The
     driver works well with devices like CDROMs and Tape drives.  The driver
     works not so well with disk drives.  The PC Card version appears to work
     better than the ISA version, but that may be due to differing levels of
     testing of the devices.
