Ok i've booted from bf24 image too, but no hard drives detected.
So i run a shell :

cat /proc/pci

To sum up :
First scsi controller :
  Lsi LOGIC/Symbios Logic (FORMERLY NCR) 53c1030
  IRQ 72
  BUS 9, DEVICE 13
  FUNCTION 0

Second scsi controller :
  Lsi LOGIC/Symbios Logic (FORMERLY NCR) 53c1030
  IRQ 73
  BUS 9, DEVICE 13
  FUNCTION 1


Where can i find drivers for this controller ?
And u've said :
"just extract it from drivers.tgz and load it from a floppy."
How can i do that ?

Thank you in advance.
Valerio.
