Scsi is a hardware interface and necessary for cd rw drives and tape
drives so far as I know.  If you're going to do backups without scsi it's
either zip disks or floppies or possibly flopticals if they're even on the
market anymore.  Max capacity for that technology last I heardwas 20mb and
it would take lots of those to backup a complete slackware system without
any additional software on the disk.  No, this isn't windows.  I've found
places though few in the kernel config questions where no help was
available mostly for the newer features placed into the linux kernel's
capabilities.  To my mind, this is not good news since unless you have
direct knowledge of the technology under question you may make a wrong
decission and have to rebuild the kernel when you find that out.  One
thing I like about linux is the ability to put ALL: ALL in my
/etc/hosts.deny file and frustrate those chinese hackers hacking into
computers in this neighborhood.
