Status:

The c1iscey was converted over to be a diskless Gentoo machine like the other front ends, following the instructions found here.  Its front end model, c1scy was copied and approriately changed from the c1scx model, along with the filter banks.  A new IOP c1x05 was created and assigned to c1iscey.

The c1iscey IO chassis had the small 4 PCI slot board removed and a large 17 PCI slot board put in.  It was repopulated with an ADC/DAC/BO and RFM card.  The host interface board from Rolf was also put in. 

On start up, the IOP process did not see or recognize any of the cards in the IO chassis.

Four reboots later, the IOP code had seen the ADC/DAC/BO/RFM card once.  And on that reboot, there was a time out on the ADC which caused the IOP code to exit.

In addition to the not seeing the PCI cards most of the time, several cables still need to be put together for plugging into the the adapter boards and a box need to be made for the DAC adapter electronics.
