I use TK 5.07, HD-Driver 7.12 (which I boot with) and don't have any
problems with my SCSI-Zip (unless I run the AB at 40MHz). I don't use
DMASNOOP or any cache-patches at all.

7.50 did work fine with SCSI-drives, but it did something nasty to my
bootpartition (C, IDE) so my graphics-card stopped working... I
reinstalled 7.12, but the card still didn't work. I then installed a
backup of the auto-folder and card started working again, and when I tried
7.50 again I got the same problem.

So ASH didn't tell the truth when they claimed that NVDI 5 has drivers for
all graphics-cards, including Nova ;-)
