[filmscanners] Re: New Adaptec ASPI version 4.70 released - Not for W95

Well, the main thing it solves is the confusion over Adaptec SCSI cards and
W2K/XP, which don't have ASPI layer in the OS as does Win9x. So folks
install a SCSI card, W2K/XP sees it and seems to install everything
necessary for it's operation, but at least as regards many (most?) SCSI
scanners, they won't function without ASPI layer.
Then began the real confusion, as Adaptec site warned "don't load it!"
(mainly because they didn't support that), but both MS and Nikon state that
must be loaded, and indeed it does.

So now, there is a version of ASPI for all Windows 'cept 95. And I suppose
it's probably improved even for Win98/ME, although I see no reason to load
it, since my SCSI chain under 98SE functions just fine.
