WARNING! Tecmar HDE+ SCSI MCA Host Adapter ALSO uses a @5130.adf! If you have mistakenly used the wrong adf, get the correct adf and save it . That gives that adf the most recent date. Run setup, choose Copy an Options Diskette. Setup will see the "new" adf and copy over the incorrect one. 

   In this case, the chipsets between the SCSI adapter and the sound card are dissimilar. No damage will occur. BUT with other adapters with like chipsets (two SCSI controllers, for instance) I would pull the adapter out, run Copy an Option Diskette on the "new" adf, then reinstall the card.
