    Flashing my SCSI Adapter's BIOS?

    This kinda sounds unfair but what the heck. Johnwill, hows 'bout I send you my 2940UW, and you can keep it and do your routined quick and easy flash to get the BIOS perfect again for yourself. You can send me one of your closet 2940uw. Fair trade?!? :D I pay shipping of course.
