Major Firmware Changes since last release:
==========================================

    	could not be entered.  With this change, Ctrl-M will be started at 
    	the end of POST

1.	The Win2k driver v2.68 and latest f/w UF82 (bios_1.66) 

2.	Support  bigger disks such as the 140GB Maxtor, 140GB Seagate, & 140GB Fujitsu. 

3.	Also backward compatible with smaller disks (18GB, 36GB, & 73GB).

4.	The maximum disk drive capacity supported by this controller is 1 Terabyte (1TB) and 10Byte-CDBs are supported (NOT 16).
	With 10Byte-CDBs, it should support drives /log





Installation:
=============
MAKE SURE TO FLASH THIS FIRMWARE ONLY WHEN USING A MEGARAID Enterprise 1200(428).

1. Create a bootable floppy.  This floppy should be a basic boot disk without a config.sys or autoexec.bat; if using a Windows 98 Boot disk, bypass these files by holding down the left shift key. 

2. Take a second blank floppy, and extract all the files from the .ZIP with the firmware in it.

3. Reboot the system, and boot from the DOS bootable floppy.  At the A:> prompt, remove the first disk and insert the second disk.

4. At the A:> prompt, type MFLASH and hit enter.  The MegaRAID flash utility will start.

5. There will be prompts asking if this is the correct adapter, and the correct image.  Say yes to both.

6. The firmware will flash.  There will be a prompt to reboot the system When the controller has been completely flashed.
