  1. I have a 1999 450mHZ Pentium II Intergraph TDZ2000 with a SCSI harddrive and LSI controller installed. I cant install XP as it cant access the SCSI. Should XP have a driver for this or should I have a 3rd party driver? It is a Seagate Barracuda 9LP ST39173LW. I went to the Seagate site looking for a driver but found none. I assume this computer came with windows 98. If I was to install windows 98, I would still need the controller and SCSI driver. Any ideas what to do besides junk this $10 computer? Also, I could only find a windows 2000 driver for the controller.

    Make and model of the LSI controller is important.
