Apollo1230 install disks

Help!

Just got an A1200 machine, equipped with Apollo1230 accelerator card..
However, don't have any hard drive or drivers etc.

Could someone give me access to the original Apollo1230 install disks ?
And manual, if possible..? :-)

Thanks in advance.

It's an 030 card; I don't think you need any drivers.

@Flashlab

Who knows, I'll have to check it out.

Anyway, I'd like to get those disks, in adf-format, for example.
I'm sure there was originally some install disk /disks included with the card package ;-) .
ANd manual, in any format, would be nice.

Amiga Install Disks Galore website (http://www.l8r.net/install/ ) seemed to not have anything Apollo1230 related :-/ .

I used to have an Apollo 030 and I can't remember there being any floppy disks with it. Anyway you don't need any drivers or anything like that.

However, doesn't the card have a scsi-2 controller built-in ?
How about that...?!

Btw, did I understand right, alas the card doesn't need anything but a right kind of scsi cable and a scsi device (hard drive, etc) to begin using it ?
So it doesn't need any extra module, scsi kit or anythng extra to work ?
I only own several old scsi (scsi 1 ??) peripherals.

No drivers are needed at all actually the extra disk was for "optional" scsi only as AFAIK

There is/was no disk with my MkIII and the manual doesn't speak of any. As I don't have a scanner, I unfortunately can't scan the manual for you.
The SCSI module is optional. linky I wouldn't be suprised, when the SCSI software on the Apollo 1260 install disk also works for the Apollo 1230.
