There was an implementation for 2.1.25 (around Feb, 1997) using the Adaptec
controllers. It has not been maintained or supported in the last two years. It
was a project at a university. I have an old reference to one of the devlopers (its' from some of the documentation).

It required some patches to the SCSI module, (to support arp I think), and a
lot of changes to the Adaptec driver. A new SCSI level driver is also provided
to implement the network device.

If you can't reach the developer, I do have a copy of the project (at least
the documentation, and a patch for it - I believe this is the whole thing).

I would like to see it updated for the fiber/SCSI controllers since that would
provide another high speed/volume network for clusters.
