Hello again,

I just tried copying a file to the IBM Spitfire on my A3000 (NetBSD 1.0).
Again, I get these:

Dec  4 22:43:01 muikku /netbsd: ahsc0: abort go: csr = 0x41, asr = 0x00
Dec  4 22:43:01 muikku /netbsd: sbicwait TIMEO @416 with asr=x0 csr=x41

Then I copied a file from one partition to another on Quantum Empire
1080.  No ahsc whines, but the machine was too busy to serve any other
processes during the copy.  The disk was seeking very quickly (obviously,
cp uses very small buffers!) and all shells locked up until the copy was
over.  I couldn't even break cp with ctrl-c! :-(

I guess someone tells me to get rid of the IBM drive or something.  Well,
I wish I could make it work with NetBSD.  It wasn't too cheap. :-I  But
the latter problem is bad, too - obviously, any user can lock up the
system by simply copying a large file from one place to another.  Is there
something wrong with my Amiga or is this really a problem?  I have 16 megs
