new controller, new disk

Hi,

I've already connected new SATA controller to free PCI slot in AlphaServer DS15 (I hope it is not so stupid). There is also external SATA disk connected to this controler. Of course there is no driver on manufacter website. Is there any chance to use disk connected this way?

>> hwmgr -show -id 49

HWID: HOSTNAME FLAGS SERVICE COMPONENT NAME
-----------------------------------------------
49: xxxx r---- none Unconfigured-device-()-at-pci0slot16



>> hwmgr -get attribute -id 49
49:
name = Unconfigured-device-()-at-pci0slot16
category = unconfigured_hardware

Re: new controller, new disk

You need is a Tru64 device driver for the
card, there probably is none anywhere, and
it's not likely that anyone will ever write
one.

Supported SCSI adapters exist, and there may
be a SCSI-SATA converter out there somewhere.
