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

SYNOPSIS
    device aic
       In /boot/device.hints:
       hint.aic.0.at="isa"

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

HARDWARE
    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)

BUGS
       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.
