I've changed to a new SCSI cable, and I've now been running for over 
a day with no problems.  Funny this is that the cable I was using was
brand new.  Anyhow, thanks to Niklas, Michael, and Chris for their help
in getting this sorted out.  

I've now got NetBSD running with one of Michael Hitch's kernels that
supports noninterlaced AGA screens, and I managed to get X11R5 working
last night.  Hats off to everyone for all the work you've done.  NetBSD
is *VERY* nice (seems pretty stable now too :).
