2	         WorkBiT NinjaSCSI-3/32Bi driver for Linux
3	
4	1. Comment
5	 This is Workbit corp.'s(http://www.workbit.co.jp/) NinjaSCSI-3
6	for Linux.
7	
8	2. My Linux environment
9	Linux kernel: 2.4.7 / 2.2.19
10	pcmcia-cs:    3.1.27
11	gcc:          gcc-2.95.4
12	PC card:      I-O data PCSC-F (NinjaSCSI-3)
13	              I-O data CBSC-II in 16 bit mode (NinjaSCSI-32Bi)
14	SCSI device:  I-O data CDPS-PX24 (CD-ROM drive)
15	              Media Intelligent MMO-640GT (Optical disk drive)
16	
17	3. Install
18	[1] Check your PC card is true "NinjaSCSI-3" card.
19	    If you installed pcmcia-cs already, pcmcia reports your card as UNKNOWN
20	    card, and write ["WBT", "NinjaSCSI-3", "R1.0"] or some other string to
21	    your console or log file.
22	    You can also use "cardctl" program (this program is in pcmcia-cs source
23	    code) to get more info.
24	
25	# cat /var/log/messages

27	Jan  2 03:45:06 lindberg cardmgr[78]: unsupported card in socket 1
28	Jan  2 03:45:06 lindberg cardmgr[78]:   product info: "WBT", "NinjaSCSI-3", "R1.0"
29	...
30	# cardctl ident
31	Socket 0:
32	  no product info available
33	Socket 1:
34	  product info: "IO DATA", "CBSC16       ", "1"
35	
36	
37	[2] Get the Linux kernel source, and extract it to /usr/src.
38	    Because the NinjaSCSI driver requires some SCSI header files in Linux 
39	    kernel source, I recommend rebuilding your kernel; this eliminates 
40	    some versioning problems.
41	$ cd /usr/src
42	$ tar -zxvf linux-x.x.x.tar.gz
43	$ cd linux
44	$ make config
45	...
46	
47	[3] If you use this driver with Kernel 2.2, unpack pcmcia-cs in some directory
48	    and make & install. This driver requires the pcmcia-cs header file.
49	$ cd /usr/src
50	$ tar zxvf cs-pcmcia-cs-3.x.x.tar.gz
51	...
52	
53	[4] Extract this driver's archive somewhere, and edit Makefile, then do make.
54	$ tar -zxvf nsp_cs-x.x.tar.gz
55	$ cd nsp_cs-x.x
56	$ emacs Makefile
57	...
58	$ make
59	
60	[5] Copy nsp_cs.ko to suitable place, like /lib/modules/<Kernel version>/pcmcia/ .
61	
62	[6] Add these lines to /etc/pcmcia/config .
63	    If you use pcmcia-cs-3.1.8 or later, we can use "nsp_cs.conf" file.
64	    So, you don't need to edit file. Just copy to /etc/pcmcia/ .

98	[7] Start (or restart) pcmcia-cs.
99	# /etc/rc.d/rc.pcmcia start        (BSD style)
100	or
101	# /etc/init.d/pcmcia start         (SYSV style)

104	4. History
105	See README.nin_cs .
106	
107	5. Caution
108	 If you eject card when doing some operation for your SCSI device or suspend
109	your computer, you encount some *BAD* error like disk crash.
110	 It works good when I using this driver right way. But I'm not guarantee
111	your data. Please backup your data when you use this driver.
112	
113	6. Known Bugs
114	 In 2.4 kernel, you can't use 640MB Optical disk. This error comes from
115	high level SCSI driver.
116	
117	7. Testing
118	 Please send me some reports(bug reports etc..) of this software.
119	When you send report, please tell me these or more.
120		card name
121		kernel version
122		your SCSI device name(hard drive, CD-ROM, etc...)
