Config Notes
Boot medium for initial installation: United Linux 1.0 SP3 CD.
NEEDED: kernel boot parameter "acpi=oldboot".
NEEDED: aic79xx rev2.0.2 driver update from FSC website: http://www.fujitsu-siemens.com/support/downloads_1.html. This driver version is released and supported by FSC. Please address any support request concerning this driver version direct to FSC.
Active USB floppy (needed for DUD) is detected as multiple SCSI disks. Device names of true second,... SCSI HDDs might be different during initial installation and afterwards. Workaround: + use only HDD 1 during initial installation (partitions of other disks can be included into the system at any time afterwards when SCSI device names are stable) + Check and fix /etc/fstab as early as possible in case of need.
