Hi Abel, Erik and Henning,

I don't think that it is a hardware problem because the same hardware 

works under windows. Unfortunately I don't have another SCSI-device
or adapter. I try to check the termination of the SCSI bus even if I don't
  know how to do it right now =).

Thanks for your hints!
