NAME
     adv — Advansys ISA/VL/EISA/PCI 8bit SCSI Host adapter driver

SYNOPSIS
     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
     kernel configuration file:

	   device scbus
	   device adv

	   For one or more EISA cards:
	   device eisa

	   For one or more VL/ISA cards:
	   device isa

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

	   For one or more PCI cards:
	   device pci

DESCRIPTION
     This driver provides access to the 8bit SCSI bus connected to the
     Advanced Systems Products, Inc.  ASC900, ASC1000, ASC1090, ASC1200,
     ASC3030, ASC3050, and ASC3150 host adapter chips.	The following tables
     list the AdvanSys products using these chips, their bus attachment type,
     maximum sync rate, and the maximum number of commands that can be handled
     by the adapter concurrently.

	   Footnotes:
	   1.	This board has been shipped by HP with the 4020i CD-R drive.
		The board has no BIOS so it cannot control a boot device, but
		it can control any secondary SCSI device.
	   2.	This board has been sold by Iomega as a Jaz Jet PCI adapter.
	   3.	This board has been sold by SIIG as the i540 SpeedMaster.
	   4.	This board has been sold by SIIG as the i542 SpeedMaster.
	   5.	This board has been sold by SIIG as the Fast SCSI Pro PCI.

	   Single Channel Products:

	   Adapter	 Bus   Floppy	   MaxSync   Commands

	   Adapter	 Bus   Floppy	   MaxSync   Commands  Channels
	   ABP752	EISA	 Yes	    10MHz	240	 2
	   ABP852	 VL	 Yes	    10MHz	240	 2

     Per target configuration performed in the AdvanceWare menu, which is
     accessible at boot, is honored by this driver.  This includes synchro‐
     nous/asynchronous transfers, maximum synchronous negotiation rate, dis‐
     connection, tagged queueing, and the host adapter's SCSI ID.  The global
     setting for the maximum number of tagged transactions allowed per target
     is not honored as the CAM SCSI system will automatically determine the
     maximum number of tags a device can receive as well as guarantee fair
     resource allocation among devices.
