Adaptec puts Ultra2 into Linux source

Ultra2 support will also be available via Red Hat 5.2

Adaptec says it has now provided all the tools, product and documentation for the development of Ultra2 Linux drivers. Ultra2 capabilities are now in the main Linux source, and are to be released in Red Hat's Linux 5.2. According to Red Hat Ultra2 developer Doug Ledford, Linux support of Adaptec is "better than anything previously available to the Linux OS community." Adaptec says it sees the Linux development model as being a benefit to the PC industry, and that it will continue to provide SCSI chip design and host adapters to key Linux developers, along with product information for quality assurance labs to Linux distributors. ®
