First, _inhibit_sync[] has been changed into a (4 byte) int called
"sbic_inhibit_sync". It's initial value is 1, so you'd have to set it to 0,
IF!!! it hangs while scanning all your SCSI-disks.

As you apparently got as far as mounting your amigaos, this isn't the solution
you're looking for.

Good question. :-| Try re-formatting your amigaOS-partition or use a different
one which is plain FFS (no internationsl mode) and blocksize 512 bytes.
