Unfortunately, true.  AS2.1 doesn't natively contain drivers for the LSI 
1030 SCSI solution either.  (This problem is typical of trying to support 
hardware that's newer than the software.)

OK, doesn't hurt, but that isn't the cause of your problems.

It is a normal SCSI controller, but alas, is also newer than AS2.1 knows 
about.  Same situation as the PERC 4/Di, we're in the process of 
validating a driver for this combination, it's not yet been released to 

Given the upcoming holidays, it will be January before this all gets 
straightened out.
