Here is my strange situation. I have a Power Tower Pro 225 with a 336 G3 card installed. I have an IBM Ultra Star 9 gig on a Jackhammer card with 8.6. I installed 9.0 on the OEM 2 gig that is on the normal SCSI bus. When I go to boot of that drive, it will hang and then boot off of the drive with 8.6 on it. But, if I have a Zip or Jaz disk in their respective drive it will boot of the 9 drive as it should. I am also using Soft Raid 2.2. Can anyone figure this out? Thanks
