Does this mean that I need to call SCSIDRV in a different way (rather than
via the cookie)?

Currently I am accessing SCSIDRV via the SCSI cookie. Is that what you

This method, while it works fine in application programs, does not work
from within the mintnet driver under FreeMiNT version 1.15.9.

Is this the expected behaviour?

I haven't really used CVS. Is this really necessary merely to diagnose
this problem? The driver is still in development and is not event
functional yet nor publically released.

However I want to get on with the SCSI Ethernet adapter so what ever is
necessary I will try to do it. But I am not clearly understanding what the
source of the problem is or how you propose to deal with it.
