I have an old DEC Alpha that I am trying to get OpenVMS and Tru64 Unix working on but the SCSI-controllers I have tried are giving me troubles. I have tried different "PC" SCSI-controllers but parently the ones that work in these machines have different firmwares (written by Compaq/Digital ?) than the ones sold on the ordinary "PC"-market. Does anyone know where I can find re-modded firmwares that will make the cards work in OpenVMS and Tru64 Unix ? I am interested in firmwares for cards based on LSI Logic (NCR) 53C8x5 and/or the Mylex DAC960PL.

Also, can anyone compare the two files on http://www.algonet.se/~mister/bios/ and tell me if they are to the same card and any other information.

I fear you will have to get DEC-branded cards somehow.

Do not assume anything
