Hi,

I'm running SuSE Professional 9.0 on a Dell PE1750 with a PV136T attached to
the SCSI (PCI) card.

I'm having difficulty running the mtx commands. I may well be missing
something really basic, as I'm new to this sort of hardware, can anyone
help?

Here's a little of what I'm seeing:

jem:/ # cat /proc/scsi/scsi

Here's the relevant part of the libabry report from the PV136T web frontend:
