What I can't seem to be able to do with either notebook or PCCard, is configure a DOS boot floppy which will give me access to my (SCSI connected) Jaz from a DOS prompt (do I use a device=ASPIxDOS.SYS in my config.sys? and if so, which 'x', I think I've tried them all). [I want to do a Drive Image Backup/Restore to copy a partition image from one 770 to the other.] Neither PCCard documentation from Adaptec addresses the DOS accessability issue. I only need to get one PCCard working ('cause I can use the same boot floppy with that PCCard in both machines), so I'll settle for either if I can't get both.
I don't know if this will help, but I bought a SlimSCSI 1450B
(PCCard). Haven't installed it yet (told you this wouldn't help
Adaptec claims both on the website and in the documentation that it
only supports Win95. adaptec.com says the 1480 "Supports Windowsr
95, WIndows 98, and Windows NTr 4.0". I don't know if this implies
a lack of DOS support (perhaps since it's CardBus).
The only one of the three that adaptec.com suggests for Win3.1,
OS/2, WinCE, and DOS, is the 1460.
Hope this helps somewhat.
