    IIRC, 3.90 was released, but there were problems encountered with it. It was
    withdrawn and 3.82 reinstated. Although 3.90 is mentioned in the history, 3.82
    is the one available to download, at the moment.

    Hi.

    3.82A1 *is* the *current* microcode level for the FC6228 adapter. The
    version that is installed on your adapter *was* a more recent level,
    but it was withdrawn because ... youve guessed it, there were problems
    with it in relation to booting from SAN. just install the version that
    is available on the web site (3.82A1) and you should be just fine. We
    are currently booting all of our hosts with this adapter and firmware
    revison from our ESS.

    Are you _sure_ this is a FC 6228? That's not an IBM part number,
    and it didn't come loaded with IBM firmware. This looks like a
    card which was purchased directly from Emulex, rather than from
    IBM.

    At any rate, 3.82A1 is the latest level of the 6228 microcode
    supported by IBM. Version 3.90X3 was released for a short time,
    but was withdrawn.

    You need the IBM microcode for Fibre Channel boot to work. If
    you watch the console at boot, you'll know you are on the right
    track when you see the "FCode" eye-catchers--you should see one
    for each FC card.
