Copy the aic7870.dsk driver and aspitran.dsk mod-
ule from the NetWare 4.11 driver diskette you
created into the server's start-up directory (usu-
ally, c:\nwserver) on your hard-disk drive.
Doing so overwrites any existing version of the driv-
ers in the directory.
NOTE: The aic7870.dsk and aspitran.dsk files are
located in the
scsi subdirectory on the diskette.
If necessary, modify the load command line in the
startup.ncf file so that the proper path to the
driver and the correct slot number are specified.
See "Using startup.ncf and autoexec.ncf" found
later in this section.

Table 3-2. load Command Line Options
Defines location of host adapter device. If none is given, you are
prompted to specify one.
Causes driver to display host adapter configuration information at
Enables support for removable media. By default, removable
media is supported. You may want to disable removable disk
support in order to load an ASPI removable disk module.
Enables support for hard-disk drives. By default, hard-disk drives
are supported. You may want to disable fixed disk support in order
to load an ASPI fixed-disk module.
Allows you to enable the driver's registration of SCSI devices on a
per-target basis. This enable bit mask is entered in hexadecimal
format. (See the following subsection, "Bit Mask Options.")
Enables scanning for specific LUNs on all targets. (See the
following subsection, "Bit Mask Options," for details on creating
bit masks.) For example, a value of 7 causes the driver to scan for
LUNs 0, 1, and 2 on all targets. The default value of 01 causes the
driver to scan LUN 0 only.
Command line options are not case sensitive. Placing
commas between command line options is optional.
See the next subsection, "Using the load Command
Line Options," for optional values. To calculate the
slot number for each host adapter, see "Calculating the
Slot Number" found earlier in this section.
Load the driver for the first installed host adapter.
If you have additional host adapters, you must
load the driver separately for each host adapter.
Using the load Command Line Options
You can specify several command line options when the
driver is loaded. These are described in Table 3-2.
