Uniq Professional Services is pleased to announce Version 2.3 of the
Sun Common SCSI Architecture (SCSA) Generic Driver Package (SG). SG
has many features not found in other drivers, and is well worth the
time saved in development and debug. It was created by a group of
experts on Sun drivers to make use of the SCSA interface easier for
SCSI developers.

We have a driver we got from Artecon (bundled with the ADIC drive). Works
great. Artecon is at 619-931-5527 in the US.
