Installation Guide for the Symbios SDMS Drivers: SYMC8XX.SYS V4.15.00
SYM_HI.SYS V4.14.00
SYM_895A.SYS V 4.15.00
SYM_U3.SYS V5.07.00

This file describes the features and use of the Symbios SDMS device
drivers for the Windows 2000 operating system environment. LSI Logic drivers
contain the same filename for different Windows operating systems. The
driver files are packaged either in separate subdirectories based on the
Windows operating system or on different flex disks.

To determine the driver file for Windows 2000, note that the filename ends
with ".sys". For example, SYMC8XX.SYS. (The same is true for Windows NT 4.0)
To determine the operating system version, go into Windows Explorer,
display the driver file, right click on the filename, click on Properties,
and click on the Version tab. Finally, click on the Internal Filename in the
lower section. For Windows 2000, the filename appears as filename (NT 5.0).
For example, SYMC8XX.SYS (NT 5.0).

******************** Introduction for Windows 2000 ********************

Windows 2000 is an operating system designed to run on Intel-architecture
processors using current technology. It provides a graphical user interface
environment incorporating many high-level features (refer to the Microsoft
Windows 2000 documentation for details). An I/O manager handles I/O requests
in Windows 2000. To address a SCSI peripheral, the I/O manager goes through
the appropriate drivers. Class drivers for hard disk, floptical, CD-ROM,
printer, and scanner peripherals are provided in Windows 2000.

Other class drivers, provided by peripheral manufacturers, may be added
to support new devices. Tape device support is built into the operating
system itself and does not require a class driver. Microsoft provides the
port driver and LSI Logic provides the miniport drivers, which are called
SYMC8XX.SYS and SYM_HI.SYS that are bundled with Windows 2000 and
non-bundled drivers SYM_895A.SYS and SYM_U3.SYS, to complete the path to a
Symbios controller or processor with an optional SDMS SCSI BIOS. The next
sections describe these drivers and their installation.

The miniport drivers support these features:

o Ultra160 Data Transfers (for chips that support this feature)
o Domain Validation
o Synchronous negotiation (including Fast SCSI/Ultra SCSI/Ultra2 SCSI)
o Wide negotiation
o Tagged command queuing
o Multiple host adapters
o Multiple Logical Unit Numbers (LUNs)
o Disconnect/reselect
o Scatter/gather
o Differential support
o SCSI pass-through functionality
o Disk array configurations with no LUN 0
