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

     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:"isa"

	   For one or more PCI cards:
	   device pci

     This driver provides access to the	8bit SCSI bus connected	to the Ad-
     vanced 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.

	   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.

     Per target	configuration performed	in the AdvanceWare menu, which is ac-
     cessible 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 re-
     source allocation among devices.

     The adv driver appeared in	FreeBSD	3.0.

     The adv driver was	ported by Justin T. Gibbs from the Linux driver	writ-
     ten by Bob	Frey of	Advanced System	Products, Inc.	Many thanks to Advan-
     Sys for providing the original driver under a suitable license for	use in
