SCSI — SCSI device support


If you want to use a SCSI hard disk, SCSI tape drive, SCSI CD-ROM, or any other SCSI device under Linux, say yes and make sure that you know the name of your SCSI host adapter (the card inside your computer that "speaks" the SCSI protocol, also called SCSI controller), because you will be asked for it.

You also need to say yes here if you have a device that speaks the SCSI protocol. Examples of these include the parallel port version of the IOMEGA ZIP drive, USB storage devices, Fibre Channel, FireWire storage, and the IDE-SCSI emulation driver.

Do not compile this as a module if your root file system (the one containing the directory /) is located on a SCSI device.
